The Center for Biological Diversity Action Fund backed Jefferson Township Democratic Committee Chairwoman Christine Clarke for Assembly in the 26th legislative district Wednesday.
“Christine Clarke will work to protect her constituents and her state from climate impacts, and to fight for clean air, clean water, public health and ecological integrity. She will make the district a true leader when it comes to sustainability and resource conservation,” said Brett Hartl, the group’s chief political strategist. “We have had the opportunity to work with Christine in her capacity as an environmental activist and we look forward to the great work she will do in Trenton.”
Clarke, who was involved in the campaigns of Rep. Mikie Sherrill and U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez last year, is running alongside Laura Fortgang in a bid to oust Assemblyman Jay Webber and Assemblywoman Betty Lou DeCroce.
The district has 14,443 more Republicans than it does Democrats.
