Tom Malinowski won the endorsement as the 7th Congressional District Candidate last night at the Morris County Democratic Committee Convention. This marks the 3rd endorsement for Malinowski. Hunterdon and Warren Counties had open conventions in which the County Committee members and Delegates voted. Malinowski won the nomination in both of those conventions.
The only remaining county to hold a convention to make their endorsement is Union County which is scheduled for March 7th. There are 5 counties in the CD7 District. Somerset and Essex Counties already held their conventions in which Linda Weber won the nomination. Both conventions were "closed", meaning only the Municipal Chairs were able to vote.
We may see a GOP primary race against Leonard Lance. Craig Heard, who ran an unsuccessful primary against Lance in 2016 is considering going up against him again. Heard has formed an exploratory committee to consider his chances against Lance in a primary. One thing Heard and CD7 Democrats have in common - Is that Lance has got to go!
Tom Malinowski is Endorsed at the Morris County Convention (2/27/18)
