Conaway seeks Furia’s ouster, probably as a ploy

Assemblyman Herbert Conaway (D-Delanco) upset several South Jersey Democratic leaders yesterday when he showed up at a meeting of the Burlington County Democratic committee and made a motion to oust the County Chair, Alice Furia.  Furia took over last summer when Rick Perr resigned, and her term ends in June; Conaway has announced his intention to run for County Chairman.  But what this really means is that Conaway wants party support to run for State Senate the next time the seventh district seat comes up, and he’s using his County Chairman bid as leverage to get commitments for a State Senate campaign.
