DeGise jumps into State Party Chair battle

Hudson County Executive Thomas DeGise issued the following statement regarding the upcoming vote for Democratic State Party Chairman:

“I encourage all New Jersey Democrats to support Senator Buono’s choice to be the next State Party Chairman, Assemblyman Jason O’Donnell. Democratic gubernatorial nominees have traditionally selected the State Party Chair, and I believe Senator Buono should be afforded the same opportunity. We cannot allow internal deliberations to take precedence over the pressing issues facing New Jersey’s middle class and working poor. Democratic victories this November, including electing Barbara Buono as our next Governor, depend on us coming together and rallying behind the ideals of the Democratic Party.  I admire the courage of Senator Buono and Assemblyman O’Donnell for taking on this fight in defense of the Democratic Party.”
