The state was primed for a Sweeney v. Fulop home room derby that instead turned into an abrupt double kayo of those contenders and a subsequent 2017 bunt contest – at least by comparison to what might have been.
But Steven Fulop disagrees, and expresses no regrets about not running for govenror.
He also told InsiderNJ that Democrats are doing very well in turning out the vote.
“We’re overachieving,” said the Jersey City Mayor, up for reelection this year locally, as he campaigned near insurgent gubernatorial candidate Jim Johnson, who went after 11th hour votes.
“Our numbers are going to be higher than usual,” added Fulop, who backs Phil Murphy for Governor.
Flat talk has pervaded many of the turnout narratives early, but Fulop insisted that’s not the case in his home town, where the mayor anticipates victory for the Hudson County Democratic Organization (HCDO)-backed candidates.
