Princeton Dems dump Karcher

The Princeton Community Democratic Organization voted Sunday night to endorse Jenny Crumiller for Borough Council over incumbents Kevin Wilkes and Peggy Karcher. Crumiller, a former PCDO President, will run on the Mercer County Democratic organization line with the endorsement of the local party organization. Wilkes got enough votes to run on the line, but without a formal party endorsement. Karcher, who was married to the late Assembly Speaker Alan Karcher and is the mother of former State Sen. Ellen Karcher, did not receive enough votes to win either an endorsement or a position in the Democratic column.

Crumiller received 97 votes, to 72 for Wilkes and 47 for Karcher. A fourth candidate, Princeton University student Mendy Fisch, received 11 votes.
