Munoz replaces Schroeder as GOP deputy whip

Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramick (R-21) has replaced Assemblyman Robert Schroeder with Assemblywoman Nancy Munoz (R-21) as deputy whip.

 Bramnick last week stripped Schroeder of his leadership positions in acknowledgement of the Bergen assemblyman’s indictment last year on check kiting charges.

Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande (R-11) will assume the duties of co-chair of the policy committee.

"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."
