On the Fulop front, U.S. Rep. Donald Payne is up in Jersey City with a robocall supporting the downtown councilman.
Fulop is not without his own religious support. In November, he received the backing of Rev. Reginald Jackson, formerly executive director of the Black Ministers Council, and about a dozen other local ministers.
