Democratic State Chairman John Currie will have the backing of Arlene Quinones Perez, the Hunterdon County Democratic chair, when he seeks re-election in 2020.
“The support is certainly there for John Currie,” Quinones Perez told the New Jersey Globe.
Quinones Perez called on New Jersey Democrats to stop fighting.
“We must be united. Current leadership within the Democratic Party must work together to ensure that New Jersey continues to move forward with a democratic agenda,” Quinones said. “We have been presented with a debate about leadership and are being led with a false sense of urgency, with a few shaping the debate.”
She praised Currie as a successful party leader who has helped the state Democratic Party win at all levels.
“Chairman Currie deserves the respect, professionalism, and support that we would all expect after serving three successful terms as chair of our party,” Quinones Perez said.
