Ben Giovine Pushing For TRJCC Endorsement In Toms River Mayoral Race

Toms River Democrats’ mayoral nominee, Ben Giovine, is making a push for the Toms River Jewish Community Council (TRJCC) to endorse him ahead of his difficult election against Republican Dan Rodrick, according to a report from Shore News Network.

Giovine, who is a top political aide to Congressman Andy Kim (NJ-3), has been vocally opposed to Rodrick’s campaign messaging, which local Jewish leaders accused of being antisemitic – an allegation that Rodrick vehemently denied. In the June primary, the TRJCC implicitly endorsed Geri Ambrosio over incumbent Mo Hill and Councilman Dan Rodrick.

Toms River is a strongly Republican town, though Democrats believe that Giovine is a strong candidate who could potentially upset Rodrick in the general election.
