Assemblywoman Marcia Karrow (R-Flemington) flexed her Hunterdon County political muscle today, touting the endorsements of 14 of the county’s Republican mayors for her state senate candidacy.
"I am both humbled and encouraged that the elected officials that know me best, the ones that I work with on a day to day basis, support my decision to seek the Senate seat,” she said in a statement.
Union Township Mayor Frank Mazza called Karrow a “principled conservative” and a “force to be reckoned with.” Hampton Maor Rob Walton praised Karrow’s full-time commitment to the job, saying that “there is no question in my mind that Assemblywoman Karrow is the best choice to succeed Leonard Lance in the Senate.”
Karrow is running for the state senate seat being vacated by Leonard Lance (R-Flemington), who’s moving up to the U.S. House of Representatives. She faces conservative Assemblyman Michael Doherty (R-Washington Twp.) and Hunterdon County Freeholder Matt Holt for the party nod to become Lance’s interim replacement.
Doherty, who’s from Warren County, yesterday touted the endorsement of former Hunterdon County Sheriff Bill Doyle.
