Three Republicans seeking the GOP nod

Assemblyman Hal Wirths on Thursday said he has no intention of challenging Rep. Josh Gottheimer in 2020.

“I haven’t really thought about it,” Wirths said. “I’m definitely running for re-election, but I haven’t thought about it. At this point, I have no intentions of running. I didn’t even know there were rumors.”

Wirths, who was commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development from 2010 to 2016, is seeking his second term in the Assembly.

Former Cresskill councilman John McCann, Montvale Mayor Michael Ghassali, and former investment banker Frank Pallotta have already announced their intention to challenge Gottheimer.

Jon Dalrymple, Jr., a 29-year-old student at Warren County Community College, has formed a committee to explore a challenge to the two-term congressman.

  1. Hal Wirths is having too much fun sucking up to the special interests of Trenton to run for Congress, although it would be hilarious to see this Elmer Fudd bumble and fumble his way through a congressional race.
