Conservatives with Attitude! blogger and NJ Conservative Party Executive Director Michael Illions is reporting that the presumptive incoming Middlesex County Chairman, Assemblyman Sam Thompson, is issuing threats to municipal chairs and candidates who are supporting Fair Haven Mayor Mike Halfacre over Scott Sipprelle in the CD 12 race. Read his post here.
Word out of last week's screening committee was that Thompson was visibly upset when Halfacre beat Sipprelle 22-14 in the screening committee poll. Since then several municipal chairs have complained that Thompson had instructed them to stay neutral in the race while issuing his own endorsement of Sipprelle.
So far no one has called upon Jimmy Carter to monitor the convention.
