BRANCHBURG- Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) and U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone (D-6) helped the Somerset County Democratic Party raise about $50,000 at a private fundraiser here on Saturday.
“Bob Menendez came up from Washington because he believes in the potential to turn this county blue,” said Zenon Christodoulou, vice chair of the party.
Christodoulou and his fellow Democrats are fighting a long tradition of Republican rule in Somerset.
Over 100 people attended the fundraiser, which was held at Christodoulou’s house in Branchburg. Among the guests were 7th Congressional District candidate Linda Stender, 11th Congressional District candidate Tom Wyka, and the party’s freeholder candidates.
