In the race to nominate Republicans to Congress in the 11th arrondissement of New Jersey, a new candidate has emerged: Ruth McEndre, a third-generation nurse and farmer from Randolph.
A clinical manager at Bayada Home Health, McEndra worked as a hospice nurse and pulmonary staff nurse at St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston. She owns Miller Hill Farm in Randolph.
“It’s time for people to return home,” McEndre said. “As you are a congresswoman, I will go crazy in DC.”
McAndre did not attend the Morris County Convention or the Paseik County Inspection Committee. This week, she applied for the nomination of the Secretary of State of New Jersey, but has not yet submitted to the Federal Election Commission.
Maurice County Commissioner Teifun Selenium became the first candidate for MP Mickey Cheryl (D-Montclair) for two terms after winning the Maurice County Republican organizational line at their congress this month. He is also expected to receive approval from the Essex Republican Party.
Paul DeGruth, a former prosecutor, has an organizational line in Passover County. He promised to stay in the race. Also involved is U.S. Army veteran Toby Anderson, who took a surprisingly strong third place at the Maurice Convention.
Larry Cash, a former Kinelon council president who lost the second round against Selena, has yet to say whether he will petition for the June primaries.
