Karabinchak Wins Dems’ LD18 Assembly Convention

 Karabinchak Wins Dems LD18 Assembly Convention

On first ballot tonight, Edison Councilman Robert Karabinchak defeated Highland Park Councilwoman Elsie Foster-Dublin, Edison Councilwoman Sapana Shah, and former South River Councilman Matt Vaughn to land the Assembly endorsement of the Middlesex County Democratic Committee at the organization’s special LD18 convention.

Karabinchak wants to secure the LD18 Assembly seat vacated by Senator Pat Diegnan, who last week officially ascended to the senate seat vacated by Superior Court Judge Peter Barnes. With the backing of the party organization now, the Edison Councilman will make his play to serve the reminder of Diegnan’s unexpired two-year term in November.
