Mild Statewide Sparks Fly Off Norcross and Torricelli Appearances

Congressman Donald Norcross, who serves on the United States House Committee on Education and Labor, offered his support for the Raise the Wage Act. Democrats argue that passage of the act will increase the national minimum wage, which will lift people out of poverty and stimulate the economy.

ATLANTIC CITY – Comfortably roaming the hallways of the Borgata: former U.S. Senator Bob Torricelli (D-NJ).

Giving a speech at the podium before throngs of hundreds: U.S. Rep. Donald Norcross (D-1).

Ready to put down $20 million in necessary to put himself in contention for a U.S. Senate seat, if one becomes available, Torricelli turned up at the party down here in casual, friendly form.

Amid rumors of statewide possibilities in the future, Norcross wouldn’t indulge any discussions about a U.S. Senate run next year. He dismissed statewide questions, talking up embattled U.S. Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ), referring to himself as an “apprentice,” and sticking to detail-orienting pivots to minimum wage.
