Per South Jersey’s Harry Hurley, Brian Fitzherbert has announced his candidacy in CD2. Last year, Fitzherbert vied for the GOP nomination in a crowded primary, but was knocked off the ballot after rival Hirsh Singh challenged his petition signatures. The primary ultimately was won by Seth Grossman. Then-Senator Jeff Van Drew, a Democrat, ultimately defeated Grossman.
Hurley speculates that CD2’s GOP primary could once again be crowded, with potential candidates including Grossman, David Richter (who’s formed an exploratory committee), John Zarych, and others.
Fitzherbert is the Chair of the Atlantic County Young Republicans.
