DOMINICAN COUNCIL WON’T ENDORSE SENATORIAL CANDIDATES IN NJ

–   Race for the US Senate in New Jersey is a toss-up  –

EN ESPANOL

Washington DC. (Wednesday, October 31, 2018) — This week, after thorough and lengthy consideration, the National Dominican American Council (NDAC) decided against endorsing in the race for the US Senate to represent New Jersey.

“By all measures, the race for the US Senate in New Jersey is currently a toss-up,” said NDAC President Leodany Inojosa.

“We will remain neutral this time and encourage voters to decide, based on their conviction and available information, which of the two candidates in the race is best fit to serve in the United States Senate. The growing divide among New Jersey voters is apparent. Voters should transcend partisan politics and vote for a trustworthy candidate regardless of party affiliation.

“Although we are not endorsing at this time, we strongly encourage all registered voters, NDAC members in New Jersey, and Latinos in particular, to participate in the midterm election.  Republicans, Democrats, Independent, and Unaffiliated voters must make their voices heard, loudly and assertively, this coming Tuesday, November 6, 2018.

NDAC endorses candidates based not on party affiliation, ethnicity, gender or religious beliefs, but on their position on issues, on their abilities to maintain public trust, and their track record of doing their best for the people they represent or would like to represent.
