New Jersey GOP leaders had their Easter prayers answered today as a
political news site is reporting multi-millionaire businessman Andy Unanue will seek the nomination to take on Frank Lautenberg for the US Senate. After multi-millionairess Anne Estabrook withdrew after suffering a stroke, the GOP’s country club establishment went about frantically trying to find a replacement to prevent the nomination from going to one of the two reactionary wingnuts vying for the seat.
Unanue is heir to the Goya Foods family fortune, the largest Hispanic-owned business in the country. As such, he can finance his own campaign. He can also appeal to New Jersey’s considerably influential Hispanic community.
