Connors backing Richter

Senator no longer at Gibbs’ back

State Sen. Christopher Connors is backing former Hill International CEO David Richter in the third district’s congressional race.

“I’m supporting the process,” Connors said. “The process is that there are candidates that have been endorsed by the organization, and I will support those candidates.”

Connors and his running mates, Assemblyman Brian Rumpf and Assemblywoman DiAnne Gove, last week backed former Burlington County Freeholder Director Kate Gibbs, who had the support of the Ocean County GOP screening committee, for the district’s seat.

Gove has since switched to supporting Richter, and Connors said his endorsement only lasted as long as the county convention.

“I endorsed her up to the time of the county convention. Now that we’ve had the county convention, I support the county line,” he said. “I’m supporting Richter because I’m supporting the county line.”

Gibbs has the line in her home county.
