Mercer County Republican intrusion

Author: Rory B. Bellows

Mercer County Republicans seem determined to torpedo the effort of a young Republican who has earned his position on the ballot. Mercer County Republicans have recruited 31 year old lawyer Bill Harvey to run for the Assembly seat in the 14th legislative district.

Great. Now the Republican party will face a contested primary that has the potential to give birth to hostile feelings between two counties that make up what should be one of the most competitive Assembly races this November. Why is Brian Hackett’s age being held against him? What have “experienced” candidates that Mercer County voters suppsoedly take seriously done for the GOP? They have been rejected by the voters in the past.

I’m sure Bill Harvey is a nice man and a good Republican. But the machinations of Mercer County Republicans to undermine the candidate legitimately selected by Middlesex County Republicans, well, stink.
