Progressive activist Kyla Rodger has dropped out of the race for the Democratic State Assembly nomination in the 21st district and endorsed Jill LaZare.
Rodger cited a family emergency and workplace obligations.
“I have been lucky enough to work with progressive Democratic candidate Jill LaZare over the past few weeks and I give my full endorsement to her candidacy in this democratic primary and I can wholeheartedly say Jill LaZare will continue that fight for accountable representation, social and economic justice, and as a voice for the working families of the district. ,” said Rodger.
Rodger says LaZare will continue to “fight against the party boss system in New Jersey.”
LaZare faces Lisa Mandelblatt and Stacey Gunderman in the Democratic primary for the chance to take on GOP incumbents Jon Bramnick (R-Westfield) and Nancy Munoz (R-Summit).
