Today a group of 11 Republican state senators released a letter stating their intention to support Tom Kean Jr.’s continued role in leadership for the minority caucus. Allen, Bateman, Beck, Bucco, Cardinale, Oroho, Pennachio, Singer, Thompson, Holzapfel, and Connors all signed the letter that reads:
It is with great pleasure that we, members of the Senate Republican Caucus, announce our collective support for the re-election of Senator Thomas H. Kean as the Senate Republican Leader in the 2014-2015 legislative session.
Senator Kean has served the Republican Caucus admirably for four years, and enjoys our continued confidence and commitment. We look forward to serving with Senator Kean in the legislative term ahead and working together with Governor Christie and all members of the Legislature on an agenda that ensures that New Jersey remains an affordable place in which to live, work and raise a family.
Notably absent on this one? Kyrillos, O’Toole, Doherty, and Addiego. Obviously 11 is all that is needed to hold the position, so it seems strange that there wouldn’t be a showing of solidarity.
Stay tuned on this one . . .
