Ocean County Freeholder Ginny Haines has been re-elected Republican National Committeewoman, Save Jerseyans, following a Wednesday night voted by the New Jersey State Committee.

“Thank you to all you were there for your support and for those who were unable to due to prior commitments, thank you again,” Haines told supporters via Facebook. “I have been a member since 2004 and look forward to serving all of you over the next 4 years. You are the greatest.”

Haines’s re-up became unexpectedly uncertain after the Christie Administration and Ocean-based GOP organization of George Gilmore clashed over her tenure, the nomination of Ocean Freeholder Jack Kelly to the State Parole Board, and the candidacy of Donald Trump.

Conflicts one and two nevertheless subsided almost immediately after the Ocean GOP relented and convened a special convention to nominate Trump.
