Rutgers Law professor Eugene Mazo has raised $5,138 for his primary challenge to Rep. Donald Payne, Jr. (D-Newark) in New Jersey’s 10th district.

Mazo has $4,181 cash-on-hand.

An election law expert, Mazo edited a book, “The Best Candidate: Presidential Nomination in Polarized Times,” that will be released this year.  He has written two other books on campaign finance.   He is a graduate of Columbia University, has a masters from Harvard, a doctorate in politics from Oxford, and a law degree from Stanford.    He grew up in Newark.

The 10th district, which includes parts of Essex, Hudson and Union counties, is among the most heavily Democratic in the country.
