Assembyman Sam Thompson told MoreMonmouthMusings that he is strongly considering a run for the Senate vacancy in the new 12 legislative district. He said the support of the county chairmen in Monmouth, Ocean and Burlington Counties, all of which have towns in the district, would weigh heavily upon his decision. Thompson is the the chairman of the Middlesex GOP.
Thompson noted that if he were in the Senate, the GOP would have senatorial courtesy privileges over Middlesex County appointments.
