Middlesex County Democratic Chairman Joseph Spicuzzo says he wants Assemblyman John Wisniewski (D-Sayreville) to become the next Democratic State Chairman.
“He’s very capable, with a nice appearance, and he can talk,” Spicuzzo told PolitickerNJ.com. “It’s a difficult job, particularly now that we don’t have the governor’s mansion anymore,” Spicuzzo added. “He’s capable. I don’t know if there’s anybody else’s name out there, but John Wisniewski is very capable of doing a great job.”
The current Democratic State Chairman, Assemblyman Joseph Cryan (D-Union) is expected to step down this month to become the Assembly Majority Leader.
Other possible candidates include Assembly Appropriations Committee Chair Nellie Pou (D-Haledon), and former Senate Majority Leader Bernard Kenny (D-Hoboken).
