TRENTON, NJ – Libertarian candidate for United States House of Representatives Dorit Goikhman filed a petition last week entering her into the race against incumbent Frank Pallone.
The 26-year-old Morganville attorney and Brooklyn Law School graduate hopes to connect with a younger demographic that is traditionally targeted in a low turnout mid-term election.
“Frank Pallone has been in office since 1988. That’s the year I was born. It’s about time that young people get some representation in Washington, because we are the ones who are suffering due to the financially irresponsible decisions of our predecessors.”
Goikhman believes she will connect with the youth demographic in a manner that has eluded decades of Republicans in this district.
“Young people believe in me. Yes, I want to make massive cuts, but I want to do it compassionately. I’m not out there fighting against the minimum wage. I’m talking about cuts to federal drug enforcement and bringing our troops home. I’m talking about putting an end to mass incarceration. These are issues that resonate with the young people of New Jersey.”
“The last thing we need in Washington is experience. What we need are fresh new ideas - people who aren’t afraid to shift the two party paradigm and come up with creative solutions to the dire economic troubles we are facing as a nation.”
