Saxton says he’s not endorsing now, and asks the GOP to unite behind one candidate

Congressman Jim Saxton says that he does not intend to endorse anyone for the House seat he has held since 1984, and that he has an “open door policy” to share his thoughts with any Republican interesting in representing the third district.

Saxton says he has a strong preference for the three county GOP organizations to adopt a plan to pick one candidate before the April filing date and avoid a primary. He said such a process would have helped him in his first race for Congress, when three Republicans sought the nomination.

“I believe it would be extremely worthwhile for the three republican organizations to identify and adopt a district wide process to choose a single candidate for everyone to endorse and support,” Saxon told PolitickerNJ.com. “To fail to do so would be a great help to one person, John Adler, and to one organization, the Camden County Democrat organization.” Saxton says he’s not endorsing now, and asks the GOP to unite behind one candidate
