GOP Candidate Receives Threatening Letter, Media Silent
A GOP member running for Congress in New Jersey received a letter threatening his family on Wednesday. The mainstream media is, of course, silent about it possibly because it doesn't fit the current narrative they are pushing that the president is responsible for the increased political violence.

According to The Daily Wire:

Jay Webber, who is running in New Jersey’s 11th district to replace retiring Republican Rodney Frelinghuysen, got a letter at his law office with the following verbiage:

What the f--- is wrong with you … s---bagYou BETTER hope that you don’t win! Or else. How many kids do you have… 7? Unlucky 7. This is what we think of you. Time to get out of politics.

As reported, Webber has featured his wife and seven children in campaign ads. Webber responded on Twitter, writing, "Criticizing a candidate on the issues is part of politics. Threatening my children is not. We are thankful for the support of law enforcement as we work to find whoever is behind this gutless act. We will not be intimidated as we work to make #NJ11 better for everyone.”


On Tuesday, Webber’s campaign had tweeted, “The angry left is fully unhinged. Maybe b/c the left’s leaders in Washington encourage violence! Don’t retaliate! Respond by putting up more #WebberForCongress signs & volunteering. Let's win this the right way & work together to make #NJ11 better for everyone.”

  Webber's opponent released a statement denouncing the threatening letter and calling it "appalling." The escalation of political violence in America is concerning and should stop regardless of political affiliation.
