Burlington County Gives Its Line to Ciattarelli

Burlington County Gives Its Line to Ciattarelli

Burlington County officially dissents, Save Jerseyans, formally throwing in behind Jack Ciattarelli on Monday evening in his battle to thwart Kim Guadagno‘s gubernatorial primary ambitions.

The endorsement occurred by acclamation.

Burlington’s screening committee backed Ciattarelli on Friday, signaling today’s results in advance. The endorsement also comes in the shadow of a reported conflict between state GOP chairmen (with Layton and Gilmore lining up in opposite corners) over the direction of the party’s future.

Asm. Ciattarelli (R-16) now has the “line” in Mercer, Somerset and Burlington counties.

“I am humbled by the outpouring of support from Burlington County Republican leaders in advance of tonight’s County Committee Meeting,” said Ciattarelli in advance of the vote. “My message of a new direction for our state and our party is resonating and our momentum is growing each day.”

The campaign also released an extensive list of endorsements including the Evesham Municipal GOP Chairman whose Mayor and Council went their own way and endorsed Guadagno last week:
