NJ assemblyman's widow seeks his seat

April 6, 2009 12:54:19 PM PDT
The wife of New Jersey Assemblyman Eric Munoz is seeking to replace her dead husband on November's ballot. Nancy Munoz received the unanimous endorsement of the Union County Republican organization Sunday. The 54-year-old nurse says her husband wanted her to replace him.

If selected, his wife would run in the 21st District, which occupies parts of Union, Somerset, Morris and Essex counties.

A committee will decide whether she'll serve out the remainder of her husband's term, which expires in January.

Eric Munoz died of a ruptured aorta on March 30. The couple has four sons and a daughter.
