Republican State Senate candidate Steve Oroho has won the endorsement of Morris County Freeholder John Murphy.
Murphy had Oroho's support when he sought the Republican nomination for Governor in 2005. Guy Gregg, who is also seeking the Senate seat being vacated by Robert Littell, endorsed Bret Schundler in that contest.
Oroho is a Sussex County Freeholder. Sussex makes up the bulk of the 24th. Gregg is from Morris County.
Oroho is running on a ticket with incumbent Assemblywoman Alison McHose, Littell's daughter. The Littell family also supported Murphy for Governor.
