Like you, I’ve been frustrated with what I see happening to America. The radical Democrats want to take away our freedom, our guns, our right to free speech, control our bodies, and destroy our American way of life. The Establishment Republicans are more concerned about their social status and relationships than fighting for us. Vote for me, and I will fight for you, our Republican values, and our freedom.”

– Erik Peterson

Watch Erik speak to Republican Committee

Tried. Tested. True.


During the 12 years that I have served in the legislature I have been an unwavering advocate and outspoken voice for Republican values of small limited government, low taxes, and defending the limitations on government set forth in both our Federal and State Constitutions. I have always had an "A" rating with New Jersey Right to Life and the NRA. I was advocating for medical freedom long before COVID-19 and all of Governor Murphy's mandates made most New Jerseyians realize the value of the individual right to say "no" to government forcing you to be injected with any substance without your voluntary consent. My voting record and the way I have lived my life demonstrates, that to me, being a Republican is more than just a name, but is a way of life.

– Erik Peterson


"Erik needs you. Our country needs you. Your contribution, no matter how big or small, is so vital to the efforts to get a tried, tested and true Republican voice to the U.S. Congress. Thank you." – Nirav Vyas, Treasurer
