Engineer Hirsh Singh of Linwood will run for the United States Senate this year, promising a conservative campaign for the seat currently occupied by U.S. Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ).
There was a thought among Republicans in the establishment that the party could get Singh to stand down, but it appears tonight that he has decided to go forward.
The establishment of the party appears to be solidifying around pharma executive Bob Hugin.
Essex businessman Brian Goldberg also told InsiderNJ that he is running for the Republican nomination.
Singh impressed insiders last year with his gubernatorial run. Thanks to a late infusion of cash he placed third respectively behind Kim Guadagno and Jack Ciattarelli.
