Rep. Scott Garrett Faces Challenge from Fellow Republican
Bergen resident will run against Garrett, according to reports.
Bergen County resident Michael Cino has filed paperwork to run against fellow Republican Rep. Scott Garrett in the state's June primary, according to The Express-Times.
"At some point, the Republican leadership have to say this guy's not effective," Cino said in the report.
Garrett has picked up support from Bergen's top Republican officials, including County Executive Kathleen Donovan. Cino, co-founder of the Cino Oil Company, launched an unsuccessful bid against Garrett in 2006, NJ.com reported.
Teaneck Deputy Mayor Adam Gussen became the first Democratic candidate to formally announce he would work to unseat Garrett. Passaic County Freeholder Director Terry Duffy and former Giants player Harry Carson are both said to be exploring a run.
