Coniglio could announce withdrawal as early as today

State Senator Joseph Coniglio, who is the target of a federal corruption probe, could announce his withdrawal from the 38th district Senate race as early as late today, according to party insiders.

The two-term Bergen County Democrat met with key party leaders last night, where he was told that a Bergen Democratic poll showed that he would have an uphill battle to win re-election, and that the Democratic Party would not financially support his candidacy.
