HIGHTSTOWN, N.J., March 15, 2014 – Long-time New Jersey Republican powerhouse Virginia “Ginnie” Littell has been named chairman of the Murray Sabrin for U.S. Senate campaign, it was announced Saturday. She will also act as a senior advisor to the campaign.

“I’m pleased and proud to have a woman of such stature, integrity and experience as Ginnie partner with us to move New Jersey and the nation forward. Her willingness to join with us shows the appeal our message of lower taxes, less government spending and respect for civil liberties and the Constitution has across the political spectrum,” said Sabrin.

Mrs. Littell and her family have been steeped in New Jersey’s political scene for decades. She served as state GOP chairman from 1992 to 1995 in addition to holding numerous other local and statewide offices in the Republican Party.  Gov. Chris Christie is the 11th New Jersey governor with whom she has worked.  She also co-owned a retail business and currently serves as a business consultant.

Her husband, Sen. Robert E. Littell, served in the New Jersey Legislature for 40 years, and their daughter, Alison Littell McHose, R-Sussex, has served in the state Assembly since 2003.

“I’m not a person who is impressed by titles or labels,” said Mrs. Littell. “I’m impressed by performance, and that’s why I support Murray Sabrin.”

“For me, it’s about the integrity of the person and what they bring to the table – that’s what I like about Murray,” she said. “Among the candidates running for the GOP nomination to oppose incumbent Sen. Cory Booker, it’s clear that he’s the best person to articulate the needs of all New Jerseyans.”

“Unlike some, Murray isn’t just an urban politician,” Mrs. Littell said. “He also sees the points of view of people in the suburbs and in the rural areas of New Jersey, which is, after all, the Garden State.”

“Murray offers leadership and a platform on the federal budget, the National Debt and, most importantly, jobs that has bi-partisan appeal around which we all can rally,” she said.

Sabrin said he was humbled and honored to receive Mrs. Littell’s support.

“Having Ginny on board gives us a real boost,” said Sabrin. “New Jersey needs a serious person as its next U.S. Senator, and I’m that person.”

Sabrin also said he expects to receive other high-profile endorsements from noted state leaders over the next few days.

"Potentially, we can get this done, because it's important. We get it. We understand it. But there are issues. There's the speedy trial component. How are we going to pay for this? How is the risk-assessment piece of it going to be done?" - Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto (D-32), on bail reform.
