Parsippany NJ, Rosemary Becchi, republican candidate for Congress in New Jersey’s 11th Congressional District, released a video attacking Mikie Sherrill’s veterans’ advocacy record since taking office.
“Mikie turned away New Jersey veteran service organizations when they traveled down to meet her in Washington, DC.” said Nick De Gregorio, a Marine Corps. veteran who previously served in Iraq and Afghanistan. “Being a veteran in Congress should not be about wearing flight suits in TV commercials. It should be about paying it forward to the veterans you served with.”
In the video, Vietnam Army veterans Gene Dittamo, John Reilly, and Bill Menzel, along with Iraq and Afghanistan Marine Corps. veteran Nick De Gregorio speak directly to the audience, explaining why they have given up on Mike Sherrill while expounding on their support for Rosemary Becchi.
“Mikie Sherrill should be ashamed of herself,” said Rosemary Becchi. “Mikie Sherrill has failed to protect our veterans. We need to honor our commitments to those who served our country. In Congress, I promise that I will always support the men and women who serve and have served our country and their families.”
