Newark Councilman Ronald C. Rice worked the Chamber train.
He’s exploring a run at veteran U.S. Rep. Donald Payne (D-10) right now.
“I’m very close to making a decision and I’m leaning toward running,” Rice told PolitickerNJ.com.
Rice has a scheduled Monday fundraiser at the Spot and based on that will assess his shot at Payne.
“I will make a decision by the end of February,” said the councilman.
