Democrat Keith Kazmark Announces Exploratory Committee to Run Against Frelinghuysen


Rodney Frelinghuysen is looking at more challengers. Back in May, former Navy pilot Mikie Sherrill of Montclair announced her plans to run against Frelinghuysen. Now Woodland Park Mayor Keith Kazmark announced the formation of an exploratory campaign committee to run for United States Congress in New Jersey’s 11th District.

“Washington is broken,” said Woodland Park Mayor Keith Kazmark, in an announcement today. “As a small town mayor, you can’t hide from challenges. You face them head on and find solutions. Our current Congressman, Rodney Frelinghuysen, seems to have forgotten that. Too often, politicians in Washington choose their party over their constituents. That’s what Rodney Frelinghuysen did when he voted to support the Republican health care bill. All while protecting his gavel as Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee. That’s not leadership.

  1. His vote for repeal is why I voted for him and will again. Hopefully the communists from Montclair.West Paterson will crash and burn again. Another deploralicious happy Nobama/Clinton day. 🙂

  2. Frelinghuysen was hand-delivered, on camera, a handwritten note from a good friend of mine with stage 4 breast cancer who could not afford her current treatments without the ACA, and whose note made it very clear that repealing it would likely cause her death. (Details at .)

    He expressed his concern and promised to keep those with pre-existing conditions protected. His vote a few weeks later showed otherwise.

    He’s a lying, weak-willed SOB, and I want him gone.

    You may see this as sticking it to “the communists from Montclair” — some of us see this in terms of actual lives, not keeping score.
