Hoboken Councilman Ravi Bhalla charged out of his corner when he read incumbent Assemblyman Ruben Ramos’s (D-33) quote that Ramos isn’t losing any sleep over Bhalla’s off the line challenge of him.
“That’s terrific news,” Bhalla said. “Challengers do best when incumbents are sleeping well. Just ask Paterson Mayor Jeffrey Jones.”
Underdog Jones defeated incumbent Mayor Jose “Joey” Torres last year.
Torres reportedly told an inquirer prior to Election Day if he was in a contest and Torres said, “I have token opposition.”
