Joe Condo, last Republican to serve as director of the Camden County Board of Freeholders, has endorsed Claire Gustafson for the GOP congressional nomination in New Jersey’s 1st district.
Gustafson, a former member of the Collingswood Board of Education, announced yesterday that she would challenge Rep. Donald Norcross (D-Camden).
“I’ve had the opportunity to meet with both announced Republican candidates in the First Congressional District and Claire Gustafson is clearly the better choice,” Condo said. “Claire has repeatedly stepped up for the party, held local office and most recently resurrected Camden County’s Republican women organization. She has the skill set needed to take on South Jersey’s political machine.”
Gustafson has already been endorsed by Greenwich Township Mayor George W. Shivery, Jr., former Magnolia Mayor Joe Adolf and former Stratford Councilman John Dudley.
She will face a primary against Josh Duvall, a Cherry Hill Republican who announced his candidacy last year.
