Ciattarelli Makes A Stand with Mercer, Middlesex Victories

It was an objectively solid night for Jack Ciattarelli, Save Jerseyans.

The Republican gubernatorial primary candidate carried the Mercer County convention, 67 votes to 31 for Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno (+ 3 for Joe Rullo and one non-vote), securing that county’s line which included populous (and Republican) Hamilton Township.

Meanwhile, in Middlesex County, Ciattarelli won the screening committee’s deliberations (36 to 22) after two votes, falling only 1% short of the threshold for a formal recommendation ahead of the March 25th convention.

The LD16 Assemblyman’s district takes in towns from both counties.

Ciattarelli now has two lines officially — Somerset and Mercer — with Middlesex clearly in play.

Guadagno has seven: Camden, Cape May, Hudson, Ocean, Passaic, Salem and Warren counties are in the bag.
