President Donald Trump gave an 11th hour endorsement to GOP New Jersey Senate hopeful Bob Hugin Tuesday, saying the candidate has been “successful all his life” and would be a “Great Senator” for the state.

The Commander-in-Chief posted his last-minute pitch on social media, writing “Bob Hugin, successful all of his life, would be a Great Senator from New Jersey. He has my complete and total Endorsement! Get out and Vote for Bob.”^tfw|twcamp^tweetembed&

Recent polling has Hugin closing the gap between himself and incumbent Democratic Senator Bob Menendez.

The President’s comments come just hours after he wrapped up an eleven-day, eleven-city campaign tour touting a growing economy, record-setting unemployment, and his administration’s harsh crackdown on illegal immigration.
