McCabe well-positioned in Middlesex

Sources in Middlesex County report Democratic County Committee members consolidating a majority of support behind Kevin McCabe to succeed sitting Middlesex County Chairman Peter Barnes at the end of Barnes’s term.

A labor leader with the New Jersey Regional Council of Carpenters and former chairman of the Woodbridge Democratic Organization, McCabe – a close ally of Woodbridge Mayor John McCormac and state Sen. Joe Vitale (D-19) – lost to Barnes in 2011.

When he first sought the chairman’s post, McCabe also had the early support of state Sen. Barbara Buono (D-18), now a candidate for governor.
