Fraternal Order of Police endorses Baraka in Newark mayoral race, sources say

Several sources have told that the Newark chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) has endorsed South Ward Councilman Ras Baraka in the Newark mayoral race. 

Baraka and his main rival in the race to run New Jersey’s largest city, former state Assistant Attorney General Shavar Jeffries, met with the FOP leadership on Wednesday night to seek the law enforcement organization’s endorsement.
