Brick’s Republican organization has thrown its support behind current Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno to be the party’s candidate in the 2017 gubernatorial election to succeed Gov. Chris Christie.

Guadagno is among a field of candidates that include Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli, Nutley Commissioner Steven Rogers, local business owner Joseph Rullo and, potentially, former “Saturday Night Live” cast member Joe Piscopo.

John Catalano, president of the Brick Republican Club, said his organization “is one of the strongest local GOP organizations in the state, and we are proud to endorse Kim Guadagno for governor.”


“Kim has been to Brick countless times to support our candidates over the years, and we know she will provide the leadership we need so the Republican Party can win at all levels based on sound principles of lower taxes and smaller, smarter government,” Catalano said in a statement.

“Our campaign for a better New Jersey relies on the strong support of grassroots Republicans and the success of local Republican organizations like in Brick,” said Guadagno. “I am honored to have the support of the Brick Republican Club as our campaign for a better New Jersey builds momentum across the state every day.”

The winner of the state’s GOP primary will face one of several Democrats looking to retake the governor’s office, including former Goldman Sachs executive Phil Murphy, Assemblyman John Wisniewski and Jim Johnson, former U.S. Undersecretary of the Treasury for Enforcement.

    Because SheChristie is just what we need.

    Oh yeah, like Acropolis (who Catalano served under) and Christie lowered my taxes! Ha!

      Andy Pat thinks his friend Extortionist Joe Scarpelli was a great mayor.
      Acropolis was a terrible mayor and Christie is a terrible governor but neither one has been convicted for admitted bribery and extortion as Scarpelli has.

      • Andy Pat

        Scarpelli was not my friend. However, he was a far better and much more respected Mayor than Acropolis, despite his shortcomings. Scarpelli paid his debt while Acropolis still sucks (the gov’t teet)

        Respected by who? Other crooks?
        Honest people didnt respect him.
        People he shook down didnt respect him.

    Are these the same people who endorsed New Jersey Governor “Swine,” (twice) President “Chump” and the speaker for the VAAD “End Around Stinger?”
    The picture of Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno reveals what she really is.

    Doesn’t matter. She’ll be weighted down by the turd we call Chris Christie, the man who licked Trumpanzees boot and then got kicked by it.

      I am so impressed that monkeys like you can type. We humans have been able to for a while…

        And that there is why conservatives have no future in a black nation.

      • Spencer Trilby

        Exactly. Luckily we aren’t in Africa. Humans win!!!

    Kim is the only one with decent experience, and a record that voted against the gas tax (a biggy..how did your candidate vote?), voted against the ridiculous $300 million state house repair (are you kidding me 1 building?), and strives to push agendas that will make our real estate taxes come down. Cannot go wrong with a conservative trying to save the NJ taxpayers money, and shrink government. God knows we need tax relief for sure!
