Assembly Democrats went into the field with a poll tonight that will help them identify their strongest possible fourteenth district Assembly candidates — and assist Linda Greenstein in her decision making process. The survey will test Greenstein against Republican Bill Baroni for State Senate, and will gaugue voter approvals on several possible candidates for the open seat — including former Hamilton Council President Daniel Benson and labor leader Mike Maloney.
But Greenstein may have already made her decision. After three CWA locals endorsed Baroni this week, the risk-averse four-term Assemblywoman seems less than likely to risk her political career on a Senate bid. Indeed, at the Hamilton Township Democratic Mini-Convention tonight, Greenstein led Democrats to believe she'll seek re-election to the Assembly.
