Hatfield gets Clark support

Seventh district Republican congressional candidate P. Kelly Hatfield announced today by three prominent Clark Republicans: Mayor Sal Bonacorrso, Councilman Sheila Whiting and Republican Municipal Chairman John DeSimone.

Hatfield, a microbiologist and former Summit councilwoman, is a more low-profile member of a crowded field of Republicans hoping to replace retiring Rep. Mike Ferguson in the four-county district. She’s counting on a lot of support in her native Union County, also home to congressional candidate Marty Marks, the mayor of Scotch Plains.

Hatfield already has the support of two state legislators from Union County: Assembly Minority Whip Jon Bramnick and his running mate, Assemblyman Eric Munoz.
