Harkness leaving Senate GOP

Senate Minority Executive Director Jim Harkness has announced his resignation effective next week.

In an email to all Republican senators, Harkness said leaving is not a decision he takes lightly.

“With Governor Christie on the top of the ticket, Senator Kean’s leadership, and hard work from all of you, the Senate Republican caucus is on the verge of making great gains in November,” he wrote. “However, the prospect of three children attending college over the next eight years requires me to make some difficult choices.” 

No word yet on where Harkness is headed.
