Stellato and Menendez spotted

Lou Stellato, presumed by most Bergen County political watchers to be primed to take over the county Democratic organization, was spotted having breakfast this morning with U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez.

Stellato is due to come up for vote next week and is said to have the support of key county municipal chairs across Bergen.  If elected, Stellato would hold the Chairmanship during Menendez’s re-election campaign next year.

Bergen is considered a must-win county in statewide elections.

Stellato would replace Michael Kasparian, who is stepping down as the county chairman.
