Morris County Freeholder Hank Lyon will run in the Republican primary for an LD26 Assembly seat.
That’s the district currently served by assemblyman Jay Webber and Assemblywoman Betty Lou DeCroce.
Lyon singled out DeCroce in an email blast to supporters printed below.
That’s no surprise to Republicans who have watched a deterioration of the relationship between the two assembly people.
They tried so hard to make it work, but it’s gotten to the point where even the two staffs feel uncomfortable talking to each other.
Lyon running in LD26 is Webber’s way of hitting the eject button on his slate mate, one GOP source told InsiderNJ.
If that’s true, DeCroce will have to summon a big effort in the wild west atmosphere of a Morris GOP Primary.
The assemblyman has a history of running highly technical, explosive and successful political operations come campaign time.
This morning on Bill Spaedea’s radio program on NJ 101.5 FM, I announced my candidacy for the State Assembly in New Jersey’s 26th Legislative District. I have decided to run for the Assembly to give the voters of Morris, Passaic, and Essex Counties a conservative alternative to Assemblywoman BettyLou DeCroce in the June 6th Republican primary.
In the coming weeks and months, I will be discussing ways in which we can lower taxes, reduce debt, and expand freedom for everyone in our state. More importantly, I want to hear your concerns and ideas about how to make our state a better place to live for this generation and future generations.
To learn more about my candidacy, to volunteer for our effort, or to contribute to the campaign, please visit www.hanklyon.com.
Additionally, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com.
I look forward to hearing from you!
Conservative Republican for State Assembly
