Campaign themes


Bendel's website highlighted his reasons for running:[2]

"I am running for the New Jersey State Senate as a Democrat against those who favor the wealthy at the considerable expense of everyone else; a party that believes money is speech, and corporations have souls.

"Here in Ocean County, I support the real America, the living, breathing, working America, the country with a compassionate heart, a patriotic soul, and -- God bless us all -- a functioning brain."
