Carman posted Saturday on Facebook about the global women’s marches that protested sexism and Republican President Donald Trump.

Carman resisted earlier calls to apologize but said he was sorry after a freeholder meeting this week at which residents said they were offended.

The apology also came after other Republican officials urged him to say sorry.
