Edith Jorge was born and raised in Hudson County, New Jersey to Cuban-immigrant parents. A first generation American, Edith was the first in her family to graduate college and go on to pursue a Master's Degree in Law & Governance from Montclair State University.
Edith began her professional career as an intern for Governor Chris Christie's Office of Press and Communication during his first term. That same year she moved to Delaware where she worked as a Field Director for the Republican National Committee's Victory Campaign. Over the course of the years that followed, Edith ran and helped on numerous campaigns throughout New Jersey, eventually taking on a role as Regional Political Director at the New Jersey Republican State Committee. During this time, Edith had the pleasure of serving on various political and governmental boards, such as the North Bergen Housing Authority Commission, the Hudson County Young Republican Organization, and the Republican National Hispanic Assembly of New Jersey.
In 2013, Edith joined Governor Christie's re-election campaign as his Director of Hispanic outreach, helping the Governor win the Hispanic vote by 51%. The following year, she made her way to New Mexico where she was hired as Governor Susana Martinez's Political Director and helped the Governor not only win her re-election with an overwhelming majority, but take control of the statehouse for the first time since 1952.
In her spare time, Edith enjoys hiking, fishing, and teaching adjunct courses for Fairleigh Dickinson University's "˜Puerta Al Futuro' program; designed to help immigrant Latinos attain a higher education degree in the United States through a combination of academic and advanced language courses.
