Alonso Selected as New LD38 Candidate by Unanimous Vote

FernandoAlonsoThe Bergen County Republican Organization unanimously voted for Fernando Alonso to replace Anthony Cappola as the LD38 assembly candidate at a Thursday night meeting.

One hundred BCRO members cast their votes for Alonso, according to a source.

“I’m honored that I was unanimously voted for the position by the county committee,” Alonso told PolitickerNJ. “It went pretty smoothly.”

The decision comes after the sudden departure of Cappola from the race after a book he wrote containing anti-gay and anti-Semitic writings surfaced.

The BCRO has a petition pending with the Passaic County Superior Court in an effort to replace Cappola’s name on the ballot.
