Republican Poliseno also backs incumbent Dems in LD14

SPOTSWOOD – He hasn’t received that private number phone call.

“Yet,” said Mayor Nick Poliseno.

But the Republican expects them – or one – following his endorsement this morning of state Sen. Barbara Buono (D-18) for governor at the Spotswood Diner.

Poliseno didn’t stop with Buono. He also declared his support for state Sen. Linda Greenstein (D-14) and Assemblyman Dan Benson (D-14), who stood with Buono and U.S. Rep. Rush Holt (D-12).

Greenstein is running for re-election in a battleground district against former Senator Peter Inverso.

PolitickerNJ.com asked Poliseno if he intends to change parties.

“No,” he said, “staying Republican.”

A blue-collar burgh in Middlesex, Spotswood used to be in Buono’s district, back when she served as an assemblywoman. Now it is part of the 14th District – Greenstein country.
