Bob Roe’s campaign manager for his first gubernatorial campaign

When the late U.S. Rep. Bob Roe (D-8) ran for governor in 1979, he enlisted as his campaign manager a man who would go on to become a familiar figure in New Jersey politics.

Bill Pascrell, who would succeed Mr. Roe as the congressman from Passaic County, served as Mr. Roe’s campaign manager in the first of Mr. Roe’s two unsuccessful bids for the Democratic nomination for governor.
