Democratic field of contenders to challenge Christie narrows
The chairman of the state Democratic party, Assemblyman John Wisniewski of Sayreville, who had been considering a run for governor next year against Gov. Christie, announced this afternoon that he's not getting in the race. That means our first announcement about the Democratic field is actually a NON-announcement, which is interesting. Wisniewski had been considered part of a pack of second-tier potential contenders, which also includes Sen. Barbara Buono (D., Middlesex), former governor/Sen. Richard Cody (D., Essex/Morris), Assemblyman Lou Greenwald (D., Camden) and Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D., Gloucester).
