It looks like Johnson will get a fifth term

There is speculation among some Bergen County Democrats with ties to the current leadership and to Michael Kasparian, the most likely candidate to succeed Joseph Ferriero as Bergen County Democratic Chairman, that the BCDO will seek to avoid a State Assembly primary in District 37. There has been talk that the BDCO would look to oust four-term Assemblyman Gordon Johnson (D-Englewood), as there was two years ago when Ferriero endorsed a slate of candidates against Johnson, State Sen. Loretta Weinberg (D-Teaneck), and Assemblywoman Valerie Huttle (D-Englewood). Now the conventional wisdom is that Kasparian will look to heal some wounds – not expand them – and more importantly, seek to conserve campaign dollars by not spending heavily in a primary.

Some Democrats thought Johnson could be especially vulnerable this year, since Weineberg is not at the top of his ticket.
