State Sen. Ray Lesniak (D-20) today annonced he will seek re-election to the Senate.
"With our state still reeling from the effects of Hurricane Sandy and our nation rocked by the tragedy in Newton, Conn., my passion to serve is stronger today than at any other point in my career," Lesniak said.
Lesniak has served in the Senate since 1983.
In his announcement, Lesniak listed several priorities for the upcoming term, including upgrading of the state's power delivery system to avoid long-term power outages, gun control, marriage equality, animal protection and sports betting.
"This is going to be a campaign that will be victorious, if the large numbers of New Jersey residents who support my efforts come together with support, through a contribution and/or volunteering to help identify voters to support me on Election Day," Lesniak said.
In August, Lesniak suffered a minor stroke, leading to speculation that the current term could be his last.
