Why Ocean County Republicans Should Endorse David Richter

By Art Gallagher

Ocean County Republican leaders will convene in Toms River this evening.

Their most important order of business will be to endorse a primary candidate for the nomination to challenge Democrat Congressman Andy Kim in the 3rd District.  The candidate they chose will appear on the June 2 primary ballot in the same column as President Donald J. Trump, the Party’s U.S. Senate candidate (likely Rik Mehta), Freeholder Joe Vicari and the local candidates for municipal offices throughout the Ocean portions of the district.

David Richter is the best candidate to take on Congressman Kim in the general election.

Mary Pat Christie for Congress? From the 11th or the 3rd district?


Former Governor Chris Christie floated the idea of his wife, Mary Pat Christie, running for Congress in the 11th district next year as a challenger to freshman Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill, according to a report at NewJerseyGlobe.

Sherrill, who flipped the Republican 11th district convincingly with a 57%-42%  victory over Assemblyman Jay Webber, and raised a gazillion dollars to do it, will be tough to beat in 2020.

Mary Pat would have a much easier race against 3rd district freshman Congressman Andy Kim who barely beat Tom MacArthur last year.   The Chrisites own a house in Bay Head, in addition to their home in Mendam.  MacArthur relocated to Ocean County from Morris County to run for the seat after Jon Runyan retired in 2014.

Gilmore needs to step aside

POLITICO is reporting that indicted Ocean County GOP Chairman George Gilmore, also the Chairman of Ocean County Board of Elections,  said in a text message that he intends to stay on in both roles while he fights to avoid the next 30 years in prison on federal tax evasion and bank fraud charges.

Who does he think he is?  Bob Menendez?

Hopefully that text was a knee jerk reaction from a proud man in shock and denial over his situation and the peril he puts his constituencies in each day he holds onto those positions now.
