Bashaw passes on Senate bid

At the request of a group of South Jersey Republicans, former Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA) Executive Director Curtis Bashaw gave some consideration to a bid for the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate this week, but has decided not to run. Bashaw, a Cape May County businessman and a Republican, was a political ally of ex-Gov. James E. McGreevey, who named him to the CRDA post.
