Repblican Partyoperative Brian Nelson of Shrewsbury will not pursue the Monmouth County GOP chairmanship to succeed departing Chairman Adam Puharic, he told PolitickerNJ.com today.
"Some people asked me if I was interested," sad Nelson."But my daughter is two years old, and I have professional responsibilities.If I were at my own law firm in Monmouth County Imight have the flexibilitythe job requires. I don't have that right now."
At this point, former Sheriff Joe Oxley looks like the favorite, according to Republican Party sources. Chariman Puharic earlier this week told the Asbury Park Press that he would not pursue another term as chair.
