Bucco won’t rule out a 2021 reelection run

But he’s tired of being asked about it

State Sen. Anthony Bucco (R-Boonton) is tired of being asked if he’s going to run for reelection.

“I heard that every time I was elected,” Bucco said. “’You gonna run again for council?’ I don’t know, I’ll see what happens when it comes up. ‘You gonna run again for freeholder? You gonna run again for assembly? you gonna run again for senate?’”

Bucco, 80, was reelected to a sixth term last year with just 52% against Democrat Lisa Bhimani, the narrowest margin since Gordon MacInnes, a Democrat, won the seat from John Dorsey in 1993. Bucco ousted MacInnes in the next cycle and has held the seat since.

In any case, another run is still on Bucco’s mind, but he said he wouldn’t decide until the next election came significantly closer.

“I was just sworn in. I got another three years. I’ll think about it in three years,” Bucco said. “You never know what happens.”
