The Republican Party is looking for a candidate to run against Borough President Melinda Katz in November’s race for district attorney.

Queens GOP Chairwoman Joann Ariola-Shanks has met with defense attorney Joe Murray, whom she considered “very qualified.”

Murray, who is based in Kew Gardens, told the Chronicle he thinks he’ll be the candidate and said, “I’m going to be a prosecutor like they’ve never seen before.”

He added, “I’m so sick of politicians pandering and lying to people just to please them.”
