Morristown, NJ – Today, Tom Toomey (R - NJ11) called on U.S. Rep. Mikie Sherrill (D - NJ11) to demand Andrew Cuomo’s resignation and return the money that he donated to her congressional campaign, following the New York Attorney General’s report detailing graphic sexual harassment in Cuomo’s office.
The following statement can be attributed to U.S. Congressional Candidate Tom Toomey (R - NJ11):
“I am calling on Mikie Sherrill to demand Andrew Cuomo’s resignation immediately and return all the money he donated to her campaign, following the disgusting news the New York Attorney General revealed about Cuomo’s rampant sexual harassment. They’ve compiled more than 74,000 pieces of evidence against this guy. Cuomo and anyone that still supports him should never hold public office.”
“My opponent is one of the people that has benefitted from Cuomo’s abusive rise to power and she needs to make up her mind right now. Will she put herself on the right side of history? The people of New Jersey and this district deserve a clear answer, not the run and hide tactics we are used to from Mikie.”
About Tom Toomey:
Tom is a born and raised Jersey guy and businessman running to serve New Jersey's 11th Congressional district. Tom grew up in a hardworking, middle class family, and was raised with the same blue collar chip on his shoulder like so many other New Jerseyans. Early on Tom knew he wanted to go into business, so to help pay his way through school he worked 50-plus hour weeks for a Jersey catering company hand-in-hand with the owner.
No one knows better than Tom that small businesses are the backbone of America and New Jersey. After learning the ins-and-outs of how a small business functions, Tom went on to corporate America, starting his career at Thomson Reuters and then Samsung, where he was responsible for a program that generated over a billion dollars in revenue per year across the United States. Then Tom took his business expertise to an emerging artificial intelligence (AI) company, Workfusion, where he helped bring new technology to the world and helped grow businesses globally by building out Workfusion’s global go-to-market strategy.
In June of 2020, Tom felt a calling to do his part to serve America. During the past four years, he saw the policies Democrats were proposing, and having worked in business his entire career, Tom knew how harmful these policies would be for our economy, healthcare, and New Jerseyans. Then Tom decided to take his expertise and help the Republican National Committee fight for limited government, rebuild our economy and defend our American values.
After the campaign Tom returned to the business world because he was disheartened and disgusted by what he saw in Washington: politicians and bureaucrats on both sides just there to pad their bottom line and help their careers. Tom learned early on in his career that if you want something done, do it yourself. That’s why Tom decided it’s time to run and show New Jersey they have someone who will fight for them, not for special interests or DC insiders.
