SOMERVILLE, NJ – Back on the campaign trail full-time for the last 10 days, Republican gubernatorial candidate Jack Ciattarelli is crisscrossing the state and rapidly building support among key GOP leaders, including Middlesex County where an open convention process makes every endorsement highly valued.
The Middlesex County Screening Committee and full County Convention both take place later this month.
“The Middlesex County Convention has been circled on our calendar for a long time, and our support is growing by the day,” said Ciattarelli. “I love the personal and grassroots process in Middlesex, and am honored to have earned the backing of South Brunswick’s Republican Committee and five more GOP Municipal Chairs who have embraced my vision of an entirely new direction for our state and our Republican Party.”
