Crowley set to enter Senate race

HAMILTON — Princeton businessman John Crowley is poised to enter the U.S. Senate race, according to Mercer County Republican Chairman Roy Wesley.

“Crowley has indicated, at least to me, that he’s interested in becoming a candidate for U.S. Senate,” said Wesley.

The Mercer County Republicans were set to endorse a U.S. Senate candidate at a convention tonight at 7:30, but the entrance of a Mercer native has led to a motion on the floor to defer the endorsement to the Executive Committee.

Crowley is not expected to attend the convention tonight.

“I talked to him today and he said yes. He’s touching base with the other chairmen.”
