McHose hires South Jersey operative

One sign that Assemblywoman Alison Littell McHose is preparing to run for higher office — either her father’s State Senate seat in 2007 or for Lieutenant Governor in 2009: she has hired Republican operative Louis Crescitelli as her new Chief of Staff. Crescitelli worked for Congressman Frank LoBiondo and managed the Republican Assembly campaign in the third legislative district in 2005. McHose’s mother, former Republican State Chairman Virginia Littell, has openly suggested that her daughter would make a strong running mate for John Murphy, the Morris County Freeholder who is expected to name a second bid for the GOP guberbatorial nomination in 2009.
