State Sen. Sam Thompson (R-Old Bridge) has supported Monmouth County Commissioner Sue Keeley to nominate Republicans to Congress in New Jersey’s 6th District.
In the Republican primaries, Keeley faces Rick Meta, a former U.S. Food and Drug Administration official, former Republican National Committee member Thomas Toomey and 2021 libertarian gubernatorial candidate Greg Mele.
Thompson said Keeley “represents the best opportunity to expel Frank Polone from Congress and regain control of the Republican House of Representatives.”
“Keeley has shown that she is an excellent civil servant and even the best candidate,” said Thompson, a former chairman of the Middlesex Republican Party. “She turned her hometown from Democrat control into a Republican stronghold in her two city committee elections, and she twice won the county commissioner’s post with more than 60% of the vote.”
At the party congress on March 19, Kili, Mehta, Tumi and Mele oppose the Republican organization Middlesex.
