34th District candidate Mark Alexander will be in Washington, D.C., this week raising money for his challenge of state Sen. Nia Gill (D-34).
The former Obama senior advisor has events scheduled with U.S. Sen. Chris Coons, (D-DE), a law school classmate, and Greg Craig, former White House counsel to President Obama, with whom Alexander worked to develop Barack Obama's 2008 campaign platform.
Supporters of Alexander's campaign include comedian Bill Cosby, Obama appointee Tom Healy, former Press Secretary to First Lady Hilary Clinton Lisa Caputo, Congressman Joseph Kennedy III, Sila Calderon, the only female governor of Puerto Rico, former N.J. Attorney General Peter Harvey, and Sharon Pratt Kelly, the first female mayor of Washington, D.C.
The candidate has raised nearly $150,000 to date.

"Gov. Chris Christie says he won’t campaign for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York because the cause is hopeless: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ahead by more than 30 points. But he will campaign in New Hampshire, over and over, where the Republican is also trailing by more than 30 points. What’s the reason? It may be that New Hampshire holds the nation’s first presidential primary. It may be that he doesn’t want to mess with Cuomo, who knows where the skeletons are buried at the Port Authority. But one thing is certain: Gov. Straight Talk is spinning again. And it seems to be habit-forming." - columnist Tom Moran- Star-Ledger
