They rolled in to Mount Laurel to put an exclamation point on what they see as an Andy Kim win, even as their rival sought to quell the celebration, urging the continuation of a provisional ballot count.
Democrats weren’t having it, however, arguing that the math doesn’t add up for incumbent U.S. Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-3) at this point.
Mike Delamater from Governor Phil Murphy’s office showed up.
State Senator Troy Singleton (D-7).
Evesham Mayor-elect Jackie Veasy.
Camden County Freeholder Jeff Nash rolled in.

Singleton started the program.

“I am proud to announce that we have won.
“It is an honor and a privilege to be the next Congressman of the NJ 3rd district.
“From the very beginning it was all about the people.
“We have run this campaign with integrity and honor. I am so proud of what we have accomplished. So proud of what we have built.
“I will be a part of that new generation of leaders that step up to do what’s best for the America people. That is what I promise you.”
