Fifth district Democratic congressional candidate Camille Abate announced the endorsement of Passaic County Sheriff Jerry Speziale today.
“A woman of conviction and fight can win this district,” said Speaizle. “That woman is Camille Abate.”
Abate is running for the Democratic nomination against blind rabbi/psychologist Dennis Shulman, who has raised about twice as much money. Abate ran last year, losing the nomination to Paul Stuart Aronsohn.
Whichever Democrat wins will have an uphill battle to fight against incumbent Republican Rep. Scott Garrett.
