Blee says he’ll endorse Whelan

Assembly Minority Whip Frank Blee says he would endorse Democrat James Whelan for State Senator over GOP incumbent Sonny McCullough.

“Philosophically, I can not support the direction that certain leaders are taking the Atlantic County Republican Party,” Blee said in the interview with the Press of Atlantic City. “As a member of the Republican Party in Trenton, I fought against things like dual office holding and pension padding and for ethics reform and accountability to the public. Those are all issues the Republican slate must deal with immediately, and so far I haven't seen any indication that they're going in the direction I'd like to see them go.”
