Duvall won’t run in Cherry Hill, will concentrate on Norcross challenge

GOP will find replacement candidate for council race

By David Wildstein, May 31 2019 4:20 pm

Republican Josh Duvall says he will drop out of the race for Cherry Hill Township Council next week to focus on his bid to unseat Rep. Donald Norcross (D-Camden) in 2020.

Duvall told the New Jersey Globe that he never planned to run locally but wanted the local GOP to have a full slate in the general.  He says Republicans will have a replacement candidate in place before the September deadline.

A Republican county committeeman in Cherry Hill and a cancer survivor, Duvall already has the endorsement of his municipal chairman, Jeffrey Land.

He is already taking shots at Norcross in what could be the most hard-hitting 1st district race since Daniel Mangini faced Rob Andrews in 1990.

Democrats enjoy an overwhelming 233,747 to 85,737 voter registration edge over Republicans in New Jersey’s 1st district.  Norcross was re-elected by a 64%-33% margin in 2018.

Cherry Hill Democrats face a contested primary next week.

Freeholder Susan Shin-Angulo is seeking the nod to replace Chuck Cahn, who is stepping down as mayor after two terms.  Susan Druckenbrod is running on a progressive slate of local and county committee candidates in the primary fueled by a grass roots bid to curtail the power of Congressman’s Norcross’ brother, George E. Norcross III.
