Murphy will seek re-election in Morris

Morris County Freeholder John Murphy will seek re-election to a fourth term in 2006. Murphy, who is likely to make a second bid for the Republican nomination for Governor in 2008, made his announcement at a Freeholder work session earlier today. Murphy says he will not run on a slate with any other candidates in the June primary, although one of his advisors says he will back Christina Ramirez, a former Executive Director of the Morris County Republican Committee, in her bid for one of the two open seats. Incumbents Frank Druetzler and Cecilia Laureys are not seeking re-election.
