At today's Monmouth County Republican Convention a vote to approve the rules was approved.
The following candidates were nominated:

10th District: Sen. Andrew R. Ciesla; Assemblymen James W. Holzapfel and David W. Wolfe. By acclamation.
11th District: Assemblyman Sean Kean for Senate; retired Wall police officer David Rible and Mary Pat Angelini for Assembly. Neptune Township Committeeman Tom Catley withdrew his name due to a family situation and the fact that his name has been placed in nomination for a Superior Court Judgeship. We wish him the best of luck in everything. Kean, Rible and Angelini were then nominated by acclamation.
12th District: Assemblywoman Jennifer Beck for Senate; Colts Neck attorney Caroline Casagrande and Little Silver Councilman Declan O'Scanlon, Jr. for Assembly. By acclamation. Jen Beck will likely face Manalapan Committeeman Joseph Locricchio, who opted to forgo the screening process, in the June Primary.
13th District: Sen. Joseph M. Kyrillos, Jr.; Assembly Members Amy H. Handlin, PhD and Samuel D. Thompson, PhD. By acclamation.
30th District: Sen. Robert W. Singer; Assemblymen Ronald S. Dancer and Joseph R. Malone III. By acclamation.
Sheriff: Kim Guadagno over Shaun Golden.
County Clerk: M. Claire French. By acclamation.
Freeholders: Robert D. Clifton and Jeff Cantor. Clifton won by acclamation; Cantor bested Brian Reilly and J.David Hiers. It is not known at this time what incumbent Freeholder Anna Little's intentions are.

Thanks. It's not Photoshopped either. It came directly from the County GOP website! (See Adam's welcome message.) I thought I'd grab it before someone persuaded him to take it down. Note the bleary red eyes.
