Cape May County Freeholder Kristine Gabor will have critical party support to run on the Republican legislative ticket in LD1, sources tell PolitickerNJ.com.
Gabor wants to run on a GOP ticket with Senate candidate Susan Adelizzi-Schmidt of Upper Township and Assembly candidate Cumberland County Freeholder Sam Fiocchi.
"She is giving it serious consideration," Cape May County GOP Chairman Michael Donohue said.
The emerging Republican team of Adelizzi-Schmidt, Fiocchi and Gabor would face state Sen. Jeff Van Drew (D-1), Assemblyman Nelson Albano (D-1) and Assemblyman Matthew Milam (D-1).
An Upper Township Committeewoman from January 2010 until Jan. 5, 2012, Gabor won her election to the Freeholder Board in 2011.
According to the Cape May County Freeholders website, Gabor obtained licensure as an Insurance Producer for Property/Casualty, Life and Health in 1988 and subsequently obtained the professional insurance designations of Accredited Customer Service Representative and Accredited Advisor in Insurance. She is a Private Client Advisor for Bollinger Insurance.
Very popular in Cape May County, according to a Republican source, the freeholder also has solid party contacts in Cumberland and Atlantic counties.
In the event that state Sen. Diane Allen (R-7) doesn't run for re-election in 2017, the party has a short list of possible candidates it could field to try to head off either Assemblyman Herb Conaway (D-7) or Assemblyman Troy Singleton (D-7).Read More >

"Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, a Hudson County Democrat, is balking. He claimed Tuesday that members of his caucus are divided over the measure and that his house is in no real rush – besides, even if enacted this year, the reforms would not take effect until 2017, he said. And with the growing belief that Christie could skip town to run for president, some Democrats are not eager to give him another talking point for his résumé. Christie’s plans to stump for Republican candidates in New Hampshire later Thursday only fuel that suspicion." - columnist Charles Stile- The Bergen Record
