Toby Anderson, the America First Veteran candidate in CD11, files for the June Republican Primary

CD11 – Today, Iraq War veteran, conservative small business owner and father of three, Toby Anderson (48) filed his petition for the June Republican Primary in New Jersey’s CD-11.

“New Jersey deserves representation that is focused on the issues challenging our families – the rising costs of food and fuel and the encroachment of the rights of parents over their children’s bodies and minds. We need to restore our medical, economic, and individual freedom; we need fiscally responsible economic policies to control the out-of-control inflation, education policies that empower parents ahead of the government, energy policies that bring back American energy independence, and strong leadership in Washington that will deter our enemies.

Our grassroots campaign collected and submitted 452 signatures and our momentum is continuing to grow. Thank you to everyone who has supported my campaign and we are looking forward to the next 64 days when Republican voters in CD11 will be tasked with nominating the best candidate to take on Mikie Sherrill. I served my county and I now look forward to the opportunity to serve the people of NJ’s CD11.”


Toby Anderson is a conservative small business owner, Iraq War Veteran, husband, and father to three young children. Toby is running for Congress to restore parental rights, control Inflation and to put an end to the leftist policies and cancel culture supported by the Biden-Pelosi-Sherrill agenda.

Toby, the youngest of 5 children, came from a family of serial entrepreneurs who ran and then owned multiple businesses (a cleaning service, a real estate brokerage and an industrial manufacturing company). His parents’ last business suffered a financial collapse, forcing the family from their home and farm in Connecticut onto a small boat, where Toby’s bed for more than three years was a sleeping bag. Toby’s mother worked three jobs while his father struggled to keep their failing business going. Toby took his first job washing dishes at the age of 12 – one summer he gave his parents his summers’ earnings to help pay bills.

While in high school, Toby enlisted as a Private in the U.S. Army Reserves in military intelligence as a Russian Linguist. During college at Bucknell University, Toby joined ROTC and graduated as an Army officer before heading to Tulane Law School. After graduating from law school and completing artillery school, Toby went on to serve three tours in Iraq in various capacities, earning the Bronze Star for Service during his second tour. Toby was honorably discharged in 2020 at the rank of Major.

Toby and his wife Ornit started a small business in the field of home health care, creating jobs for health care workers, while serving their vulnerable neighbors. Through his business experience, Toby has seen firsthand how the anti-growth policies of Joe Biden and Mikie Sherrill have stifled opportunity – particularly as his industry, like most, struggled through the COVID-19 pandemic and the worst nursing labor crisis in recent memory.

In Congress, Toby will fight for the conservative principles of freedom and individual responsibility. Toby believes that the outsized reach of government into every facet of our lives, including our rights as parents, our businesses and our wallets has grown out of control, and it needs to STOP.

He’s ready to continue his long service to our nation in this next capacity.
