Republican Sheriff Candidate Jim Jajuga Jr. Won’t Pledge to Support GOP Nominee




jajugaDuring the republican debate for Essex County Sheriff in Methuen last month, each of the candidates were asked if they would support their party’s nominee if they don’t win the THURSDAY, Sept. 8th primary.

All of the candidates said they would, except recently registered republican Jim Jajuga.

He used up a lot of time answering the question instead of just saying “no” but in the end he would not commit to supporting the republican nominee if he was not victorious on primary election day. 

Republicans in Essex County should take note of that.

While people like Anne Manning Martin have spent a couple of decades supporting other republican candidates across the state, Jajuga can’t even pledge to support the nominee of his new party.

He did add, however, that if the nominee was Jeff Gallo he would support him.

So, what you have here is a republican candidate asking republican voters to let him represent their party, but leaving open the option to support a Democrat in the final election if he is not the anointed candidate in the fall.

Hey, at least it’s better than him lying and saying he will support the nominee of the party and then just not doing it, like republican liars: John Kasich, Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz, and Carly Fiorina.

    Just a Johnny-come-lately that doesn’t deserve Republican votes.

    Will he give up his current job if elected? Not bloody likely! Just another would be politician looking to double dip from the public trough!

    This guy is really a Massachusetts Democrat like dear old dad…

    He’s not for the party, just himself. Not worthy.

    Typical party jumper. Doesn’t care about the actual problems and issues. He’s just running for the title. Every debate he participated in was all hot air. He never answered a question.

    His dad was a phony as State Senator as well as a current Methuen City Councilor. All for himself, family tradition to the next generation.

    Will Mr. Robito be supporting Chief Coppenger? According to the debate in No. Andover he pledged to support the Democratic front runner. Does anyone know?

    Does anyone know what will happen to the money that the losing candidates raised. What can they do with the money? Can they donate it to a charity? Or start a charity? For example can they donate their money towards the opioid problem in Essex county?

      They can donate it to a registered charity. They can also keep it and continue to use it if there “intent” is to run for office again at some undetermined point in the future. One of the many perks of the Massachusetts hack-o-rama!
