Thompson: GOP nominates McGowan to succeed Fried on LD14 ticket

Middlesex County Republican Committee Chairman Sam Thompson said a joint committee of Republican committee members from Middlesex and Mercer unanimously nominated Sheree McGowan of Robbinsville for the Assembly in the 14th District.

“We had at least 102 committee members show up and submit signed signatures,” Thompson told PolitickerNJ.com. “If anyone wants to come look at them, they’re here.”

The mini convention took place at the Stone Terrace on Kuser Road in Hamilton.

McGowan failed in her initial bid to succeed Robbinsville Mayor Dave Fried a week ago when the joint committee couldn’t achieve a quorum.

“No problem this time,” said Thompson. “It went smooth as glass.”

McGowan joins a Republican ticket of state candidate Richard Kanka of Hamilton and former Cranbury Mayor Wayne Wittman.

Fried abandoned the state election bid due to health reasons.
