Dear Fellow Republicans:
These are challenging and difficult times for our Republic. I am writing to ask that you to join the Mercer County Republican team that is energized and committed to supporting and electing Republicans to office. We are working on recruiting quality and qualified candidates for years to come. The best way for you to do that is by joining the Capital Club and also by supporting our next event.
I have been excited to see the outpouring of support from all corners of the County and the State. If you are a Mercer County Republican Committee person, I am asking that each Committee person make an additional vested minimum donation of $100.00 or whatever you are able to, to the club. By becoming vested, you will become a valuable member of the team. No amount is too small in these unique times where we are unable to gather to have traditional fundraisers and share time together with one another. As a member, you will also receive invitations to Capital Club events that will allow you to interact at this time virtually with County and State political leaders. Your membership will also help to fund County Republican operations and support campaigns throughout Mercer County.

October 17, 2020 PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Censorship, disgusting behavior and statements by Dem Mayors! Mayors resign!
Lisa Richford, Chair Mercer County Republican Committee calls for Dem Mayors resignation
This past week, two separate actions by area democrat mayors showcased the vulgar and petty nature of democrat politicians and why the party is in decline. In Pennington, Mayor Joseph Lawver was caught removing letters from President Trump by opening sealed federal CoVid relief foodboxes for the poor. They crumbled up each one and threw in trash. See President Trump’s Letter that was retrieved from trash. Mayor Lawver’s desire to “cancel” a positive message from the president thanking farmers overrode all sense of safety and propriety. He and his team were filmed in the operation 1) not wearing face masks or gloves thereby introducing possible contamination and 2) people who the messages were meant for were denied a note from their president. Will he next go into their mailboxes to censure messages he doesn’t like?
Meanwhile In Flemmington, Mayor Betsy Driver posted on her Facebook page calling conservatives “religious zealots” and sneered “If you voted for the orange monster with COVID, go f--- yourself. If you plan on voting for him again, unfriend me and go f--- yourself again.”
These are not serious public servants, they are simply crude, petty political hacks using their positions to attack people in their communities with whom they disagree.
If Mayors Driver and Lawver do not have the personal shame to step down, I call on the Democrat party to publicly denounce and disavow themselves of them to discourage this lack of decorum and petty behavior within its ranks in the future.
Lisa M. Richford
Chair, Mercer County Republican Committee

Lisa Richford was re-elected Mercer County Republican Chair tonight, easily defeating Lawrence Republican Club President Falk Engel by a vote of 86 to 42, a 67%-33% margin.
The reorganization meeting was held outdoors at the Hamilton VFW.
Engel had recently entered the race against Richford, who survived a recall attempt in September 2019 after organizers fell short of the two-thirds majority they needed to remove her from office.
Richford now faces a general election in one of New Jersey’s bluest counties.
Mercer County Republicans haven’t won a countywide race since County Clerk Cathy DiCostanzo was re-elected in 2000 (although Chris Christie carried Mercer in 2013) and have become nearly extinct at the local level.
With the loss of Yaede and the Republican councilmembers and the defeat of Hopewell Township Committeeman John Hart by Democrat Courtney Peters-Manning in 2019, it has left Hightstown Councilman Lee Stults the only Republican elected in a partisan race in the entirety of Mercer County.
Stults is not seeking re-election this year and his replacement, James Eufemia, lost his bid for a council seat by a 2-1 margin last year.
Recently re-elected Mercer County Democratic Chair Janice Mironov has pledged to take the last Hightstown seat from the GOP this year.
Republicans did not run any candidates for freeholder in 2019 and have none this year.
Anthony Conti was elected 1st vice chair and Sherry Sinatra-Henderson was elected 2nd vice chair.
The Mercer County Republican Committee's mission is to promote conservative ideals of limited government, individual freedom and traditional American values by electing Republican leaders.
2020 is an important year to elect Republican leaders. Check out our site and get involved.
