SOUTH AMBOY — The local Tea Party is asking voters to support only one Republican City Council candidate, David J. Longenhagen.
The Tea Party previously endorsed independent mayoral candidate Vincent Mackiel, who is regarded as an environmental activist.
“David J. Longenhagen is the only true conservative in the race for city council,” said a statement posted online.
There was no endorsement issued for Republican council nominee Saverio Sagliocco.
The group will be reaching out to voters urging them to support Mackiel and Longenhagen, along with congressional candidate Anna Little, in the Nov. 2 election.
