Fuentes on LD5 Senate bid: ‘not ruling it out’

TRENTON – Assemblyman Angel Fuentes (D-5) won’t give any Shermanesque statements about the senate seat in his district right now. 

His ticket-mate, state Sen. Donald Norcross (D-5) has a slam dunk June Primary for Congress as he attempts to supplant retiring U.S. Rep. Rob Andrews (D-1).

But don’t count out Fuentes, he said moments after Assemblyman Pat Diegnan (D-18) gaveled out the Assembly Education Committee this morning.

“It’s too early, let’s talk after the Democratic Primary,” Fuentes told PolitickerNJ.

Is he ruling out a move up?

“No,” the assemblyman from Camden said, “I’m not ruling it out.”
