In the aftermath of South Jersey Democratic Leader George Norcross’s endorsement today of state Sen. Ray Lesniak (D-20) for state party chair, a key northern Democratic Party leader objected.
Veteran Passaic County Democratic Chairman John Currie said he will continue to support state Sen. Barbara Buono (D-20), who backs Assemblyman Jason O’Donnell (D-31) to be chair of the Democratic Party.
“I am standing by Senator Barbara Buono and I think we should give her the same privilege as every other Democratic gubernatorial candidate to have her choice as party chair,” said Currie, a senior campaign adviser to the Buono campaign.
“I would ask everyone to unite behind her,” Currie added. “Let’s focus on getting her elected.”
