Democrats rallied around Assemblywoman Eliana Pintor Marin (D-29), Newark, on Wednesday at her first golf outing fundraiser.
The guests included Essex County Democratic Committee Chairman Leroy Jones, powerful Essex County Executive Joe DiVincenzo, and East Ward Democratic leader Joe Parlavecchio.
Pinto Marin has an eye on the possibility of a Democratic Primary challenge next year emanating from the auspices of City Hall, now occupied by Newark Mayor Ras Baraka.
The Ironbound assemblywoman backed the unsuccessful Shavar Jeffries in the May mayor’s contest.
The presence of Jones and DiVincenzo in particular yesterday illustrated the establishment party’s commitment to Pintor Marin.
