Hudson County NJ, The Hispanic Republicans of North Jersey announced their “Outreach Fundraiser: Because the GOP is a BIG TENT”, for Sunday, September 5th 1-4pm at The Kolo Klub (1422 Grand St, Hoboken, NJ). The dinner will include guest speakers, great conversation, and food from the Kolo Klub as well as a kosher food option. Tickets for the dinner start at $150 and can be purchased here (use promo code “DumpMurphy” for the early bird discount while supplies last).
Speakers at the fundraiser will be former NJ Republican Gubernatorial Primary candidate Phil Rizzo, Assembly candidate Denise Gonzalez, and 9th Congressional candidate Billy Prempeh. Herminio Mendoza, President of the Hispanic Republicans of North Jersey stated that, “we, the Hispanics in the GOP, are happy to lead the way in diversifying the Republican Party. From Hispanics to Jews, the Black community to women, and more, the GOP needs to build out its big tent and we are doing just that.”
Indeed, both before and after the emergence of Covid, the Hispanic Republicans of North Jersey, a vocal GOP advocate of reaching out to what it endearingly calls “not-yet-Republican-voters,” has been growing new chapters. Mendoza stated, “the GOP is home base for commonsense in NJ, and there is a home in the GOP for every ethnic group in our state.”
