Currie named DNC delegation chairman

By David Wildstein, July 26 2020 1:21 pm

Democratic State Chairman John Currie will serve as chairman of the New Jersey delegation to the 2020 Democratic National Convention.

Delegates met on Saturday to choose a delegation chairman.

Biden appears to have won all but six of New Jersey’s delegates, although a small handful of races remain close and the results have still not been certified.

As chairman, he’ll lead delegation meetings.  It’s not clear what that means for convention where delegates will participate remotely as a result of the coronavirus and not travel to Milwaukee to formally nominate Biden. 

It’s not certain whether Currie will announce New Jersey’s votes for Biden, or if he will cede the virtual microphone to Gov. Phil Murphy, the titular head of the state party.

Currie also served as chairman of the 2016 convention delegation.
