The Rice Primary

State Senator Ronald Rice is reportedly considering a bid for Newark City Councilman-At-Large, a campaign that could pit him against his son, Ronald Rice, Jr., who is running for the City Council on a slate headed by mayoral candidate Cory Booker. These days, Rice is aligned with Sharpe James, whom he opposed when he gave up his West Ward Council seat to run for Mayor in 1998.
