Frelinghuysen, that far out lefty

Well, that’s the take of Rich Luzzi, the man running against Rep. Rodney P. Frelinghuysen, R-Harding, in the June 8 primary.

Speaking at a candidates’ night Wednesday in Riverdale, Luzzi said of Frelinghuysen, who was not present, “He is not a conservative, he is too far to the left.”

Luzzi suggested that there is a tug of war between the left and the right and that it is counterproductive to be in the middle. which is where he says Frelinghuysen is.

Luzzi condemned Rodney for being part of the Tuesday Morning Club, a group of moderate Republicans.

He also criticized the congressman for among other things, opposing offshore drilling, which Luzzi admitted is a tough argument to make these days.
