In Cape May, Donohue won’t run against Van Drew, focuses on re-electing Christie

Cape May County GOP Chairman Michael Donohue won’t challenge state Sen. Jeff Van Drew (D-1) next year.

“I have no intention of running,” said Dohonue, a buzzed-about Republican LD 1 challenger down in Tampa during the Republican National Convention.

“I want to work hard to re-elect Chris Christie as governor,” added the chairman, who twice came up short in bids for the Assembly.

"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."
