Assemblywoman Mary Pat Angelini told MoreMonmouthMusing that she will not be a candidate for the GOP nomination to challenge Frank Pallone in New Jersey's 6th congressional district.
"Timing is everything in politics, and this is not my time." said Angelini. "This is a crucial time in Washington and in New Jersey. I'm focused on doing the best job I can in the state legislature and supporting Governor Christie."
Angelini said she had spoken about the race to Two River Times publisher Diane Gooch but had not yet spoken to Highlands Mayor Anna Little. She said she thought that Gooch would be an excellent candidate.
