Dean formally endorses Gardner for senate

Democracy for America (DFA) Chairman Jim Dean Wednesday evening endorsed Jeff Gardner in his primary campaign for the State Senate in New Jersey’s 35th District.  

“It’s a great honor to endorse Jeff’s campaign to bring a real voice to the families of the 35th District,” stated Dean, the brother of former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean. “I’ve seen firsthand his skills as a great organizer, a great person, and a great leader.  Change isn’t going to happen unless people step up and take on entrenched politicians like Jeff is doing.  I know his grassroots campaign will set the foundation for more effective representation for 35th District families.  We need a strong voice pushing back against Governor Christie’s regressive policies, and I know Jeff can be that voice.”

There is no truth to the rumor coming out of the event last night that Dean then grabbed an American Flag and screamed – to the alarm of some present – “We’re going to go to North Haledon, we’re going to go to Paterson, Totowa, and Little Falls, yeagggrrhhh!”
