Republicans field new Assembly candidates in three South Jersey legislative districts

Courtesy of a GOP convention last week, South Jersey Republicans have new legislative candidates in the 4th, 5th and 6th districts to replace candidates who quit.

In the Fourth District, Patricia Fratticcioli of Monroe Township replaces Agnes Gardiner.

She joins Shelly Lovett, (who has been endorsed by the NJEA), in the Assembly race, along with Washington Township Councilman Giancarlo D’Orazio for State Senate.

In the Fifth District, Terrell Ratliff from Woodlynne, a recent graduate of The University of Toledo College of Law, replaces Ari Ford for the Assembly seat along with Wil Levins and Retired Marine and Camden City school teacher Keith Walker who is running for state Senate.

In the 6th District, Greg Horton replaces Sharon Moran and joins Allan Richardson in the Assembly race along with Phil Mitsch who is running for Senate.

"He’s obviously working very, very hard at it. I mean he’s traveling all over the country as chairman of the [Republican Governors Association] and I think at this point he has as good a chance or better than anybody else. His name is household word all across the country, and I think he would make a great president."
