County Dems Endorse Candidates

The Monmouth County Democratic Party has endorsed Democrats for county and national races in the November election, officials said.

In national races, the organization tapped Barack Obama for president; Robert Menendez for U.S. Senate; Frank J. Pallone Jr. for the House of Representatives in the 6th Legislative District, Rush Holt for the House of Representatives in the 12th Legislative District, and Brian Froelich, Spring Lake, for the 4th Congressional district, officials said.

This year, Middletown resident and state Sen. Joseph Kyrillos (R-13), announced that he will try to topple Menendez for the U.S. Senate seat. 

For county seats, the Monmouth County club picked Bill Shea, of Howell, for Freeholder; and for the 1-year unexpired term on the Freeholder board, Kevin Lavan; Michael Steinhorn, of Rumson, for county clerk, officials said.
