GOP picks restaurant owner for Assembly

Rob Calabro, a Hamilton restauranteer who ran for Mercer County Freeholder in 2007, was picked tonight as a Republican candidate for State Assembly in the politically competitive 14th district. Calabro was a last minute pick for the GOP, who had no candidate as of this afternoon after Hamilton Councilwoman Kelly Yaede changed her mind about running. Calabro and a candidate from Middlesex who is expected to be picked on Saturday, will face incumbents Linda Greenstein (D-Plainsboro) and Wayne DeAngelo (D-Hamilton).
