TRENTON, NEW JERSEY – On Tuesday, July 10, 2018, New Jersey’s Republican Party chairs selected Cape May County Chairman Marcus Karavan to serve as the chair of the GOP chairs at a meeting in Woodbridge Township, NJ. Their vote was unanimous.

“I want to thank my fellow chairman around the state for their confidence in me. I am grateful to you all for recognizing my commitment to move the GOP in a positive direction,” Karavan said. “My hope is to bring a renewed focus to New Jersey’s Republican Party, guided by the conservative ideals our party embodies.”
