PRESS RELEASE: De Gregorio: Josh Gottheimer & DCCC On the Run from Our “Unmatched” Campaign

January 27, 2022

FAIR LAWN – Today, Nick De Gregorio, a Marine Veteran and Republican Candidate for Congress in New Jersey’s Fifth Congressional District, made the following announcement in response to the announcement that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (“DCCC”) had added incumbent Josh Gottheimer to its endangered Democrats list:

“Since our launch just a few short months ago, our campaign has demonstrated an unmatched ability to garner both grassroots support and resources in the Republican field. This announcement today shows that our campaign has unnerved Josh and his allies in Washington because they know that our early success coupled with Carter-era inflation and foreign policy mishaps spells trouble for Nancy Pelosi’s favorite puppet.” – Nick De Gregorio

De Gregorio had previously announced that his campaign would report $403,000 raised on its year-end report for 2021 with $360,000 cash on hand. He has also announced the support of District 39 Assemblyman Robert Auth (R, Old Tappan) and Assemblywoman DeAnne DeFuccio (R, Upper Saddle River), along with an impressive showing from CD5 municipal chairs.
