Following sit-downs with U.S. Sen. Cory Booker (Sunday), Gov. Chris Christie and powerful Essex County Executive Joe DiVincenzo (Monday), Newark Mayor-elect Ras Baraka’s train continued its good government tour earlier today with a sit-down with another rival.
This time it was North Ward Councilman Anibal Ramos, who ran for mayor himself before backing out and endorsing Shavar Jeffries.
Baraka last week beat Jeffries.
A source told PolitickerNJ that Amiri “Middy” Baraka and Ramos dined in the Ironbound section of Newark, where they chatted about the historic citywide election and the future of the city.
