Republican County Committee members in either Hunterdon or Warren counties will return in March for their third special election convention of the year. They will need to elect a new Freeholder to replace the winner of Saturday’s State Assembly contest in District 23. All three candidates are Freeholders: Matthew Holt and Erik Peterson in Hunterdon, and John DiMaio in Warren. Holt’s seat is up in 2009, and there would be special elections in November to replace Peterson or DiMaio.
The three are seeking the seat vacated by Marcia Karrow, who resigned this month after winning election to the State Senate.
