Cape May County Democrats have awarded their organization line for Congress in New Jersey’s 2nd district to Tim Alexander, a civil rights attorney and former prosecutor.
It’s a little anticlimactic following the withdrawal of his only major competitor to take on Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R-Dennis) in the November general election.
Former Egg Harbor Township school board member Hector Tavarez dropped out of the race on Sunday after Alexander won the organization line in Atlantic County at their convention on Sunday.
My sincerest thanks to the Cape May County Democrats for awarding me their line and slogan,” Alexander said. “I will carry it with pride.”
In addition to Cape May and Atlantic, Alexander also has organization lines in Ocean and Gloucester.
Two other candidates are still in the race – Carolyn Rush, an engineer, and Curtis Green, a pastor and U.S. Army veteran – but neither have made much headway despite months in the race.
“When I started this campaign, I promised that I would put in the work in every part of the district to win every possible voter. During my run, I have seen the passion and dedication of the Cape May County Democrats firsthand, and I am so glad to have their support in this endeavor,” Alexander stated. “We can win this election, kick Jeff Van Drew out of office, and get to work on delivering what this district so sorely needs from Congress.”
