Ex-Sussex Dem chair endorses Warren

By David Wildstein, February 23 2020 10:46 pm

Former Sussex County Democratic Chair Leslie Huhn says she will support Elizabeth Warren for president.

Huhn had endorsed Cory Booker in early 2019, before she stepped down as county chair.   Her successor, Katie Rotondi, also endorsed Booker and has not announced her endorsement of another candidate.

The two Democrats who represent Sussex County in Congress, Reps. Josh Gottheimer (D-Wyckoff) and Mikie Sherrill (D-Montclair), have endorsed Mike Bloomberg in the presidential race.

Bernie Sanders carried Sussex County with 59% of the vote in the 2016 Democratic presidential primary against Hillary Clinton.

Huhn endorsed Clinton four years ago.

Warren won the organization line in Hunterdon County earlier this month in New Jersey’s first-in-the-state Demcoratic convention.  She defeated Bloomberg by four votes on the third ballot.
