Bergen County GOP will decide its freeholder slate, says Christie

BORDENTOWN – On March 15th this week, the Bergen County Republican Organization (BCRO) will select its candidates for this year’s county races, but Gov. Chris Christie said he does not intend to get involved.

Of particular pressing interest is the fate of incumbent Freeholder Rob Hermansen, who at this year’s swearing-in ceremony denounced elements of bossism of county politics and appeared to openly disagree with BCRO Chairman Bob Yudin’s influence on the county leadership process.

“I’m not endorsing anyone,” said Christie, reflecting on the coming scrum Thursday night in the big northern building block county.

“I ran with Rob Hermansen on the same ticket,” the governor added. “I like Rob a lot. I have nothing but nice things to say about him, but that is for the people and delegates in Bergen county to decide.”
