Cape May Republicans became the first county party to award the party line to Senate candidate Andy Unanue.
“As of today, Cape May County formally endorsed Andy for United States Senate, and we’re giving him the line,” said local GOP Chairman David Von Savage.
Von Savage personally endorsed Unanue yesterday. He emailed all 16 of the county’s municipal leaders about assigning him the preferential ballot placement, 13 of whom got back to him with unanimous support for Unanue. Cape May Republicans do not hold conventions to award the line.
Tomorrow, Monmouth and Mercer counties will hold conventions to endorse Senate candidates, followed over the next week by Ocean, Atlantic, Cumberland, Middlesex, Salem and Somerset.
