Following Speaker Vincent Prieto’s (D-32) excoriation of the GOP leader over his stated willingness to give a home in his caucus to disgraced LD38 challenger Anthony Cappola, Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick (R-21) doubled down on his challenge from earlier this year to Prieto to debate the issues with the Republicans.
“The speaker has raised an issue relating to the Republican caucus,” said Bramnick in a statement. “The speaker is entitled to his opinion. I again ask the speaker to join me in statewide debates so we can discuss all the issues facing New Jersey and the 13 years that Trenton Democrats have controlled the legislature.”
To date, Prieto, on track to maintain the majority in the lower house this year, has brushed off Bramnick’s entreaties for a showdown.
