Cryan backs McMorrow re-election bid

Monmouth County Freeholder Barbara McMorrow will have the support of Democratic State Chairman Joseph Cryan if she seeks re-election to a second term this year. Some local Democratic leaders, angry that McMorrow has sided on some votes with the two Republican Freeholders and not with the other two Democrats, have hinted that McMorrow’s place on the organization line might not be automatic. Cryan told some of those Democrats yesterday that the state party will back the incumbent for re-election — a move that might stop some of the intra-party rumblings.

Democrats won a 3-2 majority on the Monmouth Board of Freeholders last November, the first time they have controlled county government since the late 1980’s.
