Still Punching, Lesniak Sees Election Day Dispassion for the Democratic Establishment
Michael Aron called state Senator Ray Lesniak’s (D-20) Democratic Primaary bid a “quixotic quest” for the governorship, but with time ticking down on Election Day, the veteran retiring lawmaker Lesniak said he has a “puncher’s chance,” and bad-mouthed Phil Murphy’s campaign.
“I see very low turnout,” said Lesniak. “I see very little enthusiasm for Murphy.”
“And a lot of enthusiasm for me,” he added.
He admitted that the conventional wisdom favors a solid Murphy win.
“But Murphy voters aren’t Murphy voters,” the senator said. “They’re Democratic organization voters. They have no passionate connection to the candidate. So I’m hopeful. I have a puncher’s chance, but I’m prepared for victory or defeat.”
