'We're Not Going to Get Bullied': NJ GOP Candidate Receives Letter Threatening His Family
Webber was reportedly sent the letter on Tuesday and warned to "get out of politics."
"What the f--k is wrong with you … s---bag?" the typed letter read. "You 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."
Webber said that he and his family "are not going to get bullied" by anyone.
"This is likely the act of a coward who is kind of letting off some steam," he said.
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. pic.twitter.com/nmVRuV9ATH

According to NJ.com, Webber has integrated his family into his campaign and featured them in some of his ads.
He said on Saturday that people have lost the ability to separate "what unites us as Americans" with "what becomes criminal behavior."
"We've got to stop this violence that we're seeing," he said. "Antifa, the hard left, shutting down people because of their opinions. That's the problem in this country."
He added that his campaign is going to "stay on-message" in the final days before the midterm elections.
"We're going to cut taxes, create jobs, keep this economy roaring. Secure that border," he said.
