GOP leaders applaud Casha

Republican exits 11th district race, clearing field for Becchi

Four Republican county chairs are praising Larry Casha for stepping aside to avoid a GOP congressional primary to pick an opponent for Rep. Mikie Sherrill in New Jersey’s 11th district.

Casha agreed to drop out of the race this morning, clearing the field for Rosemary Becchi to challenge Sherrill in the general election.

“Larry Casha is the type of loyal Republican that our party is proud to have,” said county chairs Laura Marie Ali of Morris, Al Barlas of Essex, Peter Murphy of Passaic and Jerry Scanlan of Sussex.  “We appreciate Larry for his willingness to step up and run for Congress and now for his selflessness to avoid a primary so our party can unite behind one candidate and take back CD11.”

Becchi decided on Sunday to end her campaign against Rep. Tom Malinowski in the 7th and switch to the 11th.  She lives in Millburn, two miles from the 11th district border.

Casha, the Republican state committeeman from Morris County, had been told on Friday morning that he would be the party choice to run against Sherrill.

“We can’t thank Larry enough for all he has done for the Party and are grateful for his leadership,” the four county chairs said.

  1. Yeah, right, cuz we know nothing matters more to Al Barlas and Peter Murphy than Republican “party unity.”
    Many Republicans are going to enjoy watching Sherrill and national Dem groups drop millions right on top of Washington Lobbyist Rosemary Becchi’s head while establishment and grassroots District 11 Republicans sleep on the Becchi campaign — and Barlas and Murphy won’t be able to do anything about it.

  2. Washington Lobbyist Becchi (swamp creature) thinks she stands a chance when she was the person that President Donald Trump is trying to get out of politics. Once again, Washington Lobbyist, carpetbagger, opportunist all define her.
