Casha has $200k warchest

Larry Casha, a candidate for the Republican nomination for State Assembly in the 26th district, already has $200,000 in his warchest — mostly from a personal loan he made to his own campaign. The Kinnelon Council President, Casha is making his second bid for the Legislature: he ran in a 2001 Special Election Convention after Carol Murphy resigned to become a Public Utilities Commissioner, but lost to then-Freeholder Joseph Pennacchio. Pennacchio is running for the State Senate seat that will be vacated next year through the retirement of incumbent Robert Martin. Jay Webber, a former congressional aide who challeneged Martin in the ’03 Senate primary, is running against Casha for the open seat.
