Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop struck some political muscle flexing poses last night at a fundraiser attended by seven Democratic Party county chairs, including Speaker Vincent Prieto of Hudson, State Party (and Passaic County) Chairman John Currie and Kevin McCabe of Middlesex.

The notoriously shy and reclusive state Sen. Brian Stack (D-32) even showed up.

So did Fulop’s cross the river ally, Newark Mayor-elect Ras Baraka.

Fulop raised $110,000, according to a source, who noted the presence in the room of Bayonne Mayor Mark Smtih, Plainfield Mayor Adrian Mapp, Assemblyman Gary Schaer (D-36), Assemblyman Joe Cryan (D-20), and Somerset County Democratic Chair Peg Schaffer.

The room was packed with labor, the source added.

Moments ago, a South Jersey source reached out with the totals from Senate President Steve Sweeney’s (D-3) fundraiser on May 20th.

Packed room. Labor.

Over $500K raised, the source said.

Fulop and Sweeney are dueling statewide to be the next governor of New Jersey.
