Republican sources say Atlantic County GOP Chairman Keith Davis has a majority of support from his fellow chairmen to succeed state Sen. Kevin O’Toole (R-Cedar Grove) as chair of the 21 Republican county chairmen.
Davis himself offered no comment, but powerful Ocean County GOP Chairman George Gilmore told PolitickerNJ.com he is backing his colleague to the south.
“I support Keith,” Gilmore said. “He wants us to be more cohesive, and I think he will bring us together.”
Other GOP sources say Chairman Doug Steinhardt of Warren County intends to fight it out for the chairman’s chair.
