The Bergen GOP this afternoon continued to scout people to run for county executive against incumbent Democrat Jim Tedesco, but it appears they will have to summon someone other than Woodcliff Lake Mayor Carlos Rendo, last year’s choice for lieutenant governor.
“I know my name is being mentioned and many Republicans here in Bergen want me to run, but… quite frankly, I am not a masochist! LOL,” Rendo wrote to InsiderNJ in response to his interest in the job.
The mayor impressed in his lone debate with Lieutenant Governor-elect Sheila Oliver and created some buzz about a future candidacy. But at last year, he won’t attempt to shoulder the badly mauled Bergen Republican Party.
