Assemblyman Troy Singleton (D-7), a rising star in the Democratic Party, is backing a challenger in the Jersey City mayor’s race.
According to the Election Law Enforcement Commission (ELEC), the Election Fund of Troy Singleton contributed $10,000 to Downtown Jersey City Councilman Steven Fulop’s team.
The aggregate amount is dated Oct. 2, 2012.
Fulop is challenging two-term Democratic incumbent Mayor Jerry Healy.
