Hirsh Singh now has the organization line in Camden County — his third organization endorsement in his bid to succeed Frank LoBiondo in the U.S. House of Representatives. That’s helpful as he heads into tomorrow’s convention in Atlantic County.
Singh now has the backing of three genuinely influential GOP county chairmen: George Gilmore in Ocean, Bill Layton in Burlington, and now Rich Ambrosino in Camden.
“Hirsh has demonstrated the kind of tenacity and persistence a candidate needs to win in South Jersey,” Ambrosino said. “The fight for NJ-02 is going to be one of the toughest fights in the country and our Party needs someone with his resolve to join the Republican team and fight through to victory.”
Singh used the Camden endorsement to tout that he is the only candidate to win three lines. The problem is that the three Singh counties make up about 11% of the Republican primary votes in the district. Ocean is 10%; Burlington and Camden combined produced 727 votes in the last congressional primary.
With the rest of the district all over the place — the lines belong to Sam Fiocchi in Cape May, Bob Turkavage in Cumberland, Brian Fitzherbert in Gloucester, and James Toto in Salem — it means Atlantic is a must win for Singh.
