Coniglio: Stubborn but not stupid?

Why is Joseph Coniglio getting out of the State Senate race? A Bergen County Democratic Organization poll taken last month shows that Coniglio’s ethical woes would likely result in his defeat. Through intermediarries, Democratic County Chairman Joseph Ferriero pushed Coniglio to step aside several weeks ago, but was rebuffed by the two-term Senator who has yet to be charged with any crime. Finally, Democrats made it clear to Coniglio that if he remained in the race, he would have to do it on his own, without any financial support from the Democratic Party.
