McCullough defends Katz against GOP attacks

In one of the most competitive Senate contests in the state, CWA Local 1034 President Carla Katz is sticking with the Republican incumbent, Nicholas Asselta, the New Jersey AFL-CIO endorsed candidate. Katz attended a fundraiser for Asselta and GOP Assembly candidates Norris Clark and Michael Donohue yesterday, where she found an unlikely defender: conservative State Senator James “Sonny” McCullough. McCullough told the crowd that the Republican leadership is being too hard on Katz in their pursuit of private e-mails between her and Governor Jon Corzine, and that he was personally grateful for her loyalty to Asselta, who faces Democratic Assemblyman Jeff Van Drew in the fall.
