There’s a good chance there will be peace in Iraq before Bergen

There is no peace among Bergen County Republicans: two members of the winning side in a fierce, and often personal, primary battle for the GOP nomination for County Executive, will face off on Tuesday night in a contest for County Chairman. The incumbent, former Assemblyman Guy Talarico, under attack for his losing record in recent elections and for his often autocratic style, will face Bill Thomson, a one-time supporter and former Chairman of the New Jersey Christian Coalition. A third candidate, lobbyist Alan Marcus, dropped out of the race after his candidate for County Executive, Kathleen Donovan, lost the primary to Todd Caliguire, a former Freeholder and aide to Governor Thomas Kean, who had the backing of Talarico and Thomson. Lauren Thomson, the candidate’s wife, won the GOP nomination for Freeholder in the June primary, defeating incumbent Elizabeth Randall on Talarico’s line.
