Mercer Freeholders may face convention challenge

Mercer County Democrats will hold an open convention in 2008, which means that two incumbent Freeholders, Lucy Walter and Tony Mack, won’t automatically get party support if they decide to seek re-election. Democratic sources say that several candidates are expected to seek the Freeholder nod, including John Cimino, an unsuccessful candidate for Hamilton Councilman last week and the son of former Assemblyman Anthony “Skip” Cimino.
