A small town New Jersey mayor with strong connections to the national GOP and former President Trump announced Monday she is running to unseat Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.).

Christine Serrano Glassner, the two-term mayor of Mendham Borough, announced her campaign in a statement calling herself a "Mom and Mayor" and proclaiming, “New Jersey deserves better than this dark cloud of corruption.”

Mayor Serrano Glassner's full statement is below:

“Today, I am announcing my decision to run for the U.S. Senate because New Jersey deserves better than this dark cloud of corruption that has been following Bob Menendez for a decade,” said Mayor Serrano Glassner. “As a fighter for New Jersey residents and businesses throughout my career in federal and state government and based on my experience as a mom and a mayor, I am ready to go to work. We need a leader to fight for the hardworking men and women of New Jersey – and for America. I am that leader, and I will defeat Bob Menendez and end his career of cronyism.”

Democrat Senator Bob Menendez is currently the subject of a federal investigation by the Biden-controlled Department of Justice for allegedly receiving undisclosed gifts. The investigation comes just years after Menendez barely escaped a federal bribery conviction by the Obama Department of Justice thanks to a hung jury.

“We need a fighter – someone who believes hardworking Americans matter, and who will stop Joe Biden’s failed economic policies. Someone who believes parents’ rights matter, and who will keep woke ideology out of our schools. And we need someone who will stand up to Washington, D.C. and do what’s right for New Jersey,” Mayor Serrano Glassner continued. “Bob Menendez has failed New Jersey – because he’s more interested in enriching himself and his cronies than he is in delivering for hardworking New Jersey families. That’s why it’s high time for ‘Funny Money’ Menendez to be put into permanent retirement.”

Serrano Glassner was the regional advocate for the U.S. Small Business Administration in former President George W. Bush’s administration. She was also a top executive at the Empire State Development Corp. under former New York Gov. George Pataki (R).

Her husband, Michael Glassner, is a veteran GOP political strategist who was chief operating officer of Trump’s 2020 reelection bid. He was also involved in Trump’s successful 2016 nomination as a deputy campaign manager and political director.
