Hugin is the former CEO of bio-tech enterprise Celgene and is known as a moderate Republican as well as a fiscal conservative.
Hugin has criticized his Democrat opponent — incumbent Senator Bob Menendez — for his performance in the Senate. The Senate hopeful has expressed confidence the people of New Jersey would vote Republican this time.
“My opponent has failed to do or what he’s done, and so we’re energized, it’s time for the people to speak, and the people of New Jersey are great people, so, I’m really excited about today,” said Hugin.
