Middlesex County Democrats tonight voted Marie Corfield to be their candidate in this June’s primary election for the 16th Legislative District.
Corfield, last year’s candidate for Assembly from Raritan Township, is challenging Sue Nemeth of Princeton for the nomination. Middlesex was the first county to hold its nominating convention.
Corfield received the overwhelming majority of votes from the South Brunswick Democrats, results that officially place her on the ballot in June as a Democratic candidate.
“I am honored to receive the support of my fellow Democrats and look forward to working with them through June into November when we will win the Assembly seat in the 16th,” said Corfield.
This was the first of four Conventions that will choose the Democratic candidate in the 16th. The remaining Conventions will be held in Hunterdon, Somerset and Mercer counties.
