“I congratulate Joe Kyrillos on winning the New Jersey Republican Senate Primary, and look forward to his election in November. Joe is a proven reformer who has worked with Governor Christie to balance New Jersey’s budget, while his opponent represents the status quo of backroom deals, higher taxes and more wasteful, Washington spending. With our country’s debt at $15.7 trillion, the Garden State needs a Senator who will reach across the aisle and enact pro-growth, pro-jobs policies and we can do that with Joe Kyrillos as the next U.S. Senator from New Jersey.” – U.S. Senator John Cornyn, NRSC Chairman
In New Jersey, Joe Kyrillos has partnered with Governor Chris Christie to balance two budgets and eliminate a $13 billion budget shortfall. Additionally he has voted repeatedly to cut income, sales and property taxes.
Meanwhile, in Washington the ethically challenged Bob Menendez has voted numerous times to raise taxes on hard-working families in the Garden State, who are already among the highest taxed in the nation.
The differences between these two candidates couldn’t be any clearer and the first step towards putting New Jersey and our country back on the path to prosperity is to make Joe Kyrillos the next Senator of New Jersey.
