Camden GOP switches endorsement in 4th district Senate race

Crone seeks to put DelBorello, Walker and Esposito on organization line

Camden County Republicans have switched their endorsement in the hotly-contested 4th district legislative race and now want to award the organization line to Christopher DelBorello for State Senate, and Matthew Walker and Amanda Esposito for Assembly, the New Jersey Globe has confirmed.

The county chairman, Thomas Crone, had previously joined the Gloucester County GOP by giving the line to Senate candidate Nicholas DeSilvio and Assembly candidates Michael Clark and Denise Gonzalez.

The 4th district is one of the most politically competitive in the state and has three open seats, all held by Democrats.

State Sen. Fred Madden (D-Washington Township) is retiring after 20 years and nine-term Assemblyman Paul Moriarty (D-Washington Township) has the support of Camden and Gloucester Democrats to succeed him.  Assemblywoman Gabriela Mosquera (D-Gloucester Township) is not seeking re-election.

DeSilvio, a Gloucester county commissioner, had been viewed as the likely GOP candidate until DelBorello, a former Washington Township councilman who now lives in Camden County, entered the race.  DelBorello, Walker and Esposito also have the line in Atlantic. 

Walker, a former Buena council president, is an executive board member of the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 825, one of the state’s most powerful labor unions.
