The 6th district Democratic Assembly candidates are helping their Republican opponents qualify for public financing under a test of the Clean Elections Act.

 

The 13th district Democratic Assembly candidates gave up on trying to qualify for public financing by raising money in $5 increments.

JOSEPH CICCONE

The resignation of veteran State Senator Byron Baer makes the former Assemblyman, who gave up his seat to run unsuccessfully for Bergen County Sheriff in 2001, the leading candidate for the open Senate seat.

 

The former Bergen County Sheriff is suspended from his new job teaching criminal justice after officials at a Pennsylvania college learned the circumstances of his criminal conviction. And he might have violated his NJ parole by taking the job!

JOSEPH PENNACCHIO

PAUL ARONSOHN

The announcement that State Senator Bob Martin won't seek re-election in 2007 paves the way for the three-term Assemblyman to move up to the Senate.

 

The Democratic congressional candidate in the 5th district, whose specialty is communications, failed to capitalize on GOP Congressman Scott Garrett's vote against relief funding for New Orleans — no comment, nothing! (Editor's Note: The Aronsohn campaign issued a statement on Garrett's vote about an hour after the Winners & Losers list was posted, backdated to yesterday. Team McGreevey really does get how to deal with the press!)
