The Republican leadership team in the New Jersey state Senate wants Rep. Joe Pennacchio (R-Montville) back in 2023.

Penacchio, who is seeking re-election to a sixth term in the Senate, has received endorsements from Senate Minority Leader Steve Oroho, Deputy Minority Leader Bob Singer, Republican Conference Leader Christine Corrado, Minority Leader Anthony Book, Deputy Conference Leader Holly Schepizzi and Republican State Rep. Declan O’ Scanlan.

“Joe has been a leading voice and advocate in the Senate, not only for his constituents, but for our entire Republican caucus,” Oroja said. “He has led on many issues important to all New Jerseyans.”

Pennacchio is the assistant minority leader, the number two man in the leadership of the Senate Republican Party.

So far, Pennacchio is unopposed in the Republican primary in a district that is not particularly competitive for Democrats. But Morris County Commissioner Thomas Mastrangelo, who won re-nomination after losing at the 2021 GOP convention, is considered a possible Senate candidate.
