Camden County Democrats attacked activist Sue Altman over her appearance alongside U.S. Senate candidate Larry Hamm at a Progressive Democrats of Union County event on Saturday.

“We are proud to support Cory Booker for another term in the Senate and disappointed that Altman once again put her personal political calculations ahead of reelecting one of the most progressive leaders in New Jersey,” Camden County Democratic Chairman Jim Beach and Vice Chairwoman Barbara Holcomb said. “Although we find Altman’s stance disconcerting, it is unsurprising considering she failed to vote for Cory Booker in 2013 as he became our first African American United State Senator from New Jersey.”

It’s not clear whether Altman is backing Hamm, who is challenging Booker from the left.
