Former Bayonne Councilwoman preparing for GOP run against Sires in CD 13

Supporters of former Bayonne Councilwoman Maria Pineiro Karczewski are circulating petitions on the streets of Hudson County toward a Republican challenge of U.S. Rep. Albio Sires (D-13).

Pineiro Karczewski is a backer of Gov. Chris Christie’s with solid name ID in Bayonne.

Some local Democratic sources see her as a pre-2013 Christie Campaign building block.
