Essex Democrats backs all incumbents for re-election

By David Wildstein, March 19 2020 1:41 pm

U.S. Senator Cory Booker, Reps. Donald Payne (D-Newark), Mikie Sherrill (D-Montclair), Albio Sires (D-West New York) and Tom Malinowski (D-Ringoes) will run on the Essex County Democratic organization line in the June Democratic primary, county chairman LeRoy Jones, Jr. said today.

All incumbent countywide elected officials up for re-election this year, including County Clerk Chris Durkin and nine freeholders, have also received organization support.

Jones said that Democrats challenging Booker, Payne, Sherrill, and Sires did not seek the endorsement of the Essex Democratic party.
