The Monmouth County Republican Committee on Saturday is scheduled to choose a successor to Freeholder Rob Clifton.
Clifton yesterday assumed the oath of office as the new 12th District Assemblyman.
The field of contenders for Clifton’s vacated freeholder seat includes Mayor Bob Walsh of Howell, Atlantic Highlands Coincilman Peter Doyle and Manalapan Committeeman Ryan Green.
But Deputy Mayor Serena DiMaso of Holmdel (pictured) remains the favorite to emerge from Saturday’s convention at Colts Neck High School.
Sources in Monmouth County say DiMaso has the required establishment support to win the seat, but acknowledge the potential for a second ballot and possible alliance between Walsh and Green.
DiMaso lost to John Curley in a 2008 convention bid for freeholder.

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop- PolitickerNJ.com
