N.J. Assembly candidate, a former 'Apprentice' contestant, under fire for vulgar video
TRENTON -- A state Assembly candidate from south Jersey who was once a contestant on Donald Trump's "The Apprentice" is under fire after a video clip surfaced showing him making an obscene comment to a woman.
Brian McDowell, a Republican who is running for a seat in the 1st legislative district in one of New Jersey's most competitive races this year, rejected a request last week from the Cape May County Republican Committee to drop out of the election because of new "issues and information" that came to light.
Instead, the organization withdrew its endorsement of McDowell, 41, a real estate broker who lives in North Wildwood.
The video has been circulating through south Jersey over the last few weeks. The 10-second clip shows McDowell, an unmarried father of three, speaking to a woman, who is not completely visible, at what appears to be a bar.
