Scott bows out of Hunterdon sheriff’s race

Ralph Scott in the last 24 hours withdrew his name as a candidate for sheriff, according to Hunterdon County Clerk Mary Melfi.

That leaves James Paganessi of Readington as the frontrunner for the Republican nomination for sheriff in the heavily Republican county, as he competes with Fred Brown and George Muller.
