Laying Down the Law in CD1: Inky Backs Upstart Over Norcross

Alex Law

Progressive CD1 hopeful Alex Law

The Philadelphia Inquirer surprised the political establishment over the weekend when the South Jersey paper of record endorsed Democratic challenger Alex Law over incumbent U.S. Rep. Donald Norcross (D-1).

“Law’s most persuasive critique of Norcross concerns his reliance on donors with government contracts. Pay-to-play politics have been elevated to a dark art in South Jersey, but Norcross addresses the issue by insisting he is just an electrician-turned-politician with no special connection to such machinations. Democratic voters longing for a genuine departure from the entrenched political establishment that Norcross embodies should choose ALEX LAW.”
