Morris County Democratic Chairman Chip Robinson says that Assemblyman Anthony M. Bucco’s decision to run for an office he has no intention of holding is “Republican politics at its worst.”

“Republicans here in Morris County have spent decades working to bypass the voter to ensure that they can hold onto power,” Robinson said. “The voters of the 25th district deserve better than voting for a question mark. They deserve to know exactly who they’ll be voting for in this year’s general election.”

Bucco is planning to fill a State Senate seat left vacant last week by the death of his father, State Sen. Anthony R. Bucco.  He also intends to remain in the race for re-election to the Assembly.

If he wins – Bucco is already facing a tough challenge from Democrats Lisa Bhimani and Darcy Draeger – Republican County Committee members will select a replacement to serve until a 2020 special election.

Democrats called on Bucco to be honest with his constituents and only remain on the ballot if he plans to serve in the Assembly next year.
