Ocean County Republican Chairman Frank Holman has endorsed David Richter for Congress in New Jersey’s 3rd district.
Holman’s endorsement follows Richter’s upset victory to secure the county organization line at the Ocean GOP convention on Wednesday.
“David has worked hard from the moment he entered this race to earn the trust and support of the Ocean County GOP and voters throughout the entire district,” said Holman. “I believe that with David’s commitment to grassroots campaigning and the support of the Ocean County GOP at his back, David is the only candidate that can beat Andy Kim in November. David has the full support of our organization and I encourage every member of our team to join me in endorsing David’s campaign.”
Gibbs had won the backing of the Ocean GOP screening committee, but Richter took the convention by 8 votes this week, 68-60.
