Republican congressional candidate Peter DeNeufville is backing Rob Zwigard in is bid for Republican county chairman next week.
“It’s unfortunate that a critical element of our party’s cohesion is struggling, especially right now,” said DeNeufville in a social media post. “I am eager to help, and I believe that Rob Zwigard’s leadership could be just what we need to make the Morris GOP great once again.”
DeNeufville, who has self-funded most of his campaign for the GOP nomination in New Jersey’s 11th district, may be trying to put his favored candidate in place as he prepares to run against the Democratic nominee in what will be a competitive fall election. Or he may just be signaling his interest in serving as finance chairman of the Morris County Republican organization if he doesn’t win Tuesday’s primary.
Zwigard faces Ron DeFilippis, the current finance chairman, in the June 12 county chairman election.
