Former Democrat Mayor Endorses Hugin

MOUNTAINSIDE, NJ – Bob Hugin’s campaign for U.S. Senate continued to win broad political support today, as he received the endorsement of former, long-time Middle Township Mayor Mike Voll, a political independent who held office for 18 years.

“Bob Hugin appeals across party lines, which is why I am supporting his campaign for U.S. Senate. He is a solid and reliable Marine veteran who will put people ahead of partisan politics and put New Jersey first when elected,” said Voll. “That is a welcome change from the crook, Bob Menendez, who has failed us in Washington as he has served special interests and himself for the past 25 years.”

Voll was on the Middle Township Committee for 18 years, between 1982 and 2000, spending 16 years as mayor. He served as a Democrat for most of that period, but switched parties to become a Republican in the late 1990s and has described himself since then as politically independent. He is now a registered Democrat.

“Whether Democrat, Republican, or Independent, voters should strongly consider electing Bob Hugin to the U.S. Senate if they truly want change and want someone to break the political stalemate plaguing Washington,” Voll added.

Bob Hugin has received endorsements from four prominent Democrats as well as independent leaders. His campaign against incumbent Menendez is in a dead heat, according to recent polls.

“From the start, my campaign has been focused on reaching beyond party affiliations and reaching out to everyone in New Jersey, and I appreciate Mayor Voll’s support in that effort. As a U.S. Senator, I will put New Jersey interests first and not pander to any political base. This race is a choice between doing what is best for the people of New Jersey or continuing to be represented by a failed, corrupt career politician who has served himself and his donors instead of fighting for New Jersey,” said Bob Hugin.

Bob Hugin, a Marine Corps Veteran and business leader who has created thousands of New Jersey jobs, is running for U.S. Senate against incumbent Senator Bob Menendez. For more information visit
