Activist Dems challenge Greenwald, Lampitt

By Nikita Biryukov, April 01 2019 4:25 pm

Two activist Democrats are challenging Incumbents in the sixth legislative district, seeking to break the stranglehold power broker George Norcross has on South Jersey’s Democratic politics.

Julian Jordan and Danie Moss-Velasco are challenging Assembly Majority Leader Lou Greenwald and Assemblywoman Pamela Lampitt.

The two challengers have never run before, but Jordan said he was up to the task.

“I know it’s a challenge, but life is a challenge, and I’m up for it,” Jordan said, adding that he wasn’t scared of Norcross.

Should the challengers eke out a win in the primary, they’d likely sail through an easy general election in the solidly-blue sixth district, but there’s no indication that they’ll make it quite so far.

Jordan declined to say how many signatures he and his running mate had secured for their nominating petitions, saying only that the number would be sufficient to withstand a challenge, which he fully expects.

What’s more, the district will have access to leadership money should the primary race become competitive, and that money may come from more than just Greenwald’s role as a Democratic party leader.

State Sen. James Beach, the incumbents’ running mate in the upper chamber of the legislature, has been Camden County Democratic chairman since 2000. Greenwald took office in 1996 and has held that seat for the entirety of Beach’s tenure as county chair.
