Robert Healy Jr. won the Mercer County Republican Organization in his attempt to fight Andy Kim (D-Moorestown) in New York’s 3rd District.

Healy defeated Nicolas Ferrara, a realtor and former lawyer, by 59 votes to 27 with a 69% -31% advantage.

According to a new map of the redevelopment of the district, which will take effect in the 2022 election, five municipalities in Mercer County – East Windsor, Hamilton, Heathstown, Lawrence and Robinsville – are now in New Jersey-3.

This gives Healy, the owner of the South Jersey Shipyard, organizational lines in all three counties. He has previously won lines in Burlington and Manmouth.

Healy’s main competitor, Atilis gym owner Ian Smith, was not looking for organizational lines.

Smith gained national attention during the coronavirus pandemic as a fierce critic of policy toward COVID-19 Governor Phil Murphy.

In the 12th constituency, where MP Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-Ewing) is seeking re-election, Mercer County Republicans unanimously elected Darius Mayfield as a candidate from their organization. Mayfield will meet with director Nick Katuchi at the Republican primaries.

Mercer County Republicans have elected Michael Chianese and Andrew Catullus to run for county commissioner. They were without opposition.
