A well-known former judge has announced his intentions to run against State Senator Jeff Van Drew. David DeWeese has said today that he is going to try and secure the Republican nomination for state senate. His name will be on the ballot in the March 9 convention to be held at the Wildwoods Convention Center.
“I am very excited about the direction of the organization, and I believe that the November election is our opportunity to regain this seat in the New Jersey State Senate,” DeWeese wrote in his letter to county GOP Chairman Michael Donohue. “My decision to seek this nomination has involved not only substantial research, but also an inquiry of our constituents. I am satisfied that with hard work and party unity we will be successful in November.”
DeWeese most recently was a municipal judge and is apart of a law firm located in Wildwood. DeWeese has also been a coach for the Wildwood Catholic High School Boys Basketball team for over 20 years.
