Dan Benson’s Surprise Party

When Democratic Assembly candidate Dan Benson entered the State House today, he thought he was there to hold a press conference criticizing GOP incumbent Bill Baroni on property taxes. But the event turned into a surprise debate when Baroni showed up to answer the attack. Baroni questioned Benson in his own property tax record as a Hamilton Township Councilman. One Assembly Democratic staffer was heard in the hallways saying “we’ve got to get him (Benson) out of here.” Soon after, a seemingly flustered Benson (that description came from a Democrat in the room) left his own press conference, leaving Baroni alone standing alone at the podium — the apparent winner of the impromptu debate.
