State Sen. Christopher Connors isn’t ready to back former Burlington County Freeholder Kate Gibbs — or anyone else — for Congress in the third district.
“There are a number of qualified candidates for Congress. Certainly, I will take my time to have an opportunity to chat with all of them,” Connors said. “I haven’t chatted with anybody yet, so I think you at least should meet and talk to determine what’s the best opportunity for the Republican party.”
Gibbs lost her seat on Burlington County’s freeholder board in the same election that saw Rep. Andy Kim win the third district’s House seat.
She announced the creation of an exploratory committee to mull a bid against Kim on Thursday.
