The law office of Bernardsville resident Ed Deutsch confirmed that next Wednesday afternoon he will host a fundraiser at his home for Republican State Sen. Joseph Kyrillos, running against U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez.
Mitt Romney, the frontrunner for Republican nominee for president, is expected to attend the event.
The event will begin at 3:30 p.m., according to an employee in Deutsch's office in the Morristown location of the law firm of McElroy, Deutsch, Mulvaney & Carpenter.
Kyrillos, a Republican state senator from Monmouth County, is seeking to unseat Democrat Menendez, U.S. Senator since 2006 and before that a longtime member of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Those who wish to attend the fundraiser, should call Maria Chappa at 973-239-3024.
A video in which Romney also gave a plug to Kyrillos during this week's address to the Tea Party at Independence Hall in Philadelphia is on the savejersey.com website. In that video, Romney said he looks forwards to working with Kyrillos in Washington.
