Kyrillos may get in the U.S. Senate race after all

From In The Lobby:

March 6, 2008

Think national Republicans aren't interested in defeating Sen. Frank Lautenberg this November? Think again.

We understand that Sen. Joe Kyrillos, R-Monmouth, was seen in Washington D.C. yesterday meeting with the Republican National Committee in Washington D.C.

Kyrillos, as you know, had been the subject of a mini-boomlet to try to get him to enter the U.S. Senate race. He took himself out of the running. But national GOP leaders, who no doubt sees the same polls that say that New Jerseyans think Lautenberg's age could be an issue, may well be trying to woo him back in the race.

Anne Evans Estabrook's sudden departure from the race has also gotten a few other Republicans thinking about going for the seat. We hear that state Sens. Bill Baroni, R-Mercer, and Kip Bateman, R-Somerset, are also mulling whether to throw their hats into the ring.

Sen. Joe Pennacchio and college professor Murray Sabrin have already declared for the seat.

Kyrillos may get in the U.S. Senate race after all

In the Lobby is reporting that State Senator Joe Kyrillos was spotted in Washington yesterday meeting with the Republican National Committee.

I'm told that yesterday while Adam Puharic was trying to organize a county chairs conference call to draft Rudy, that NJ GOP chair Tom Wilson was on a RNC conference call.
