Veteran GOP Operative Woloshen Glass Begins as Mehta’s Campaign Manager

Veteran Republican operative Amanda Woloshen Glass has hired on to serve as the campaign manager for Rik Mehta, who has sewn up considerable Republican establishment support in his quest to win the June 2nd Republican Primary for U.S. Senate.

Mehta tonight won the Salem County GOP convention.

He also brought in Woloshen Glass, a veterna of hard-nosed campaigns, including the 2007 Republican Primary in LD26, where she helped propel to victory Assemblyman Jay Webber.

Woloshen Glass (pictured, above, with Senate Minority Leader Tom Kean, Jr.) also served in a key capacity for her former boss, U.S. Rep. Leonard Lance (R-7) in numerous tough primary and general election campaigns, including Lance’s key 2008 win to claim the congressional seat.

The GOP operative was most recently aligned with the candidacy of former CD2 candidate Bran Fitzherbert, who amassed signficiant party support prior to U.S. Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R-2) changing his party affiliation and clearing the Republican Primary field.

Looking to take on incumbent U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ), Mehta already has racked up support from about half the counties in the state. Last week, he narrowly lost the coveted Ocean County Republican Committee line to Hirsh Singh: 106 for Singh to 77 for Mehta.
