Sheriff mulls bid for County Executive

Atlantic County Sheriff James McGettigan is giving serious consideration to running for County Executive in 2007. McGettigan has told some Democratic insiders that he might take on GOP incumbent Dennis Levinson, who is expected to seek re-election to a third term. Most insiders expect hotly contested races for County Executive and for the State Senate for longtime Republican incumbent William Gormley’s seat, with freshman Democratic Assemblyman (and former Atlantic City Mayor) James Whelan the most likely candidate.
