Passing out croissants to commuters in Princeton Junction on Tuesday morning as part of a closing campaign blitz for Assemblywoman Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-15), Mercer County Executive Brian Hughes said he thinks his candidate will squeak it out on Election Night.
"No one's winning a landslaide," he said. "This will be a tough one and a long one. They'll be counting the votes well into Tuesday night. We have the manpower and the money to win."
Assemblyman Upendra Chivukula (D-17) and Watson Coleman both campaigned this morning on the same train platform.
"They're down here hugging each other," Hughes said. "I gave Upendra a croissant."
But Watson Coleman's main target is her Middlesex rival, state Sen. Linda Greenstein (D-14).
"It's going to come down to turnout," said the veteran Hughes, son of the late Gov. Richard Hughes. "I went to a rally yesterday, and the Carpenters, Laborers and Electricians were there. Bonnie has saturated the district with a positive message."
There's history here with the families of Hughes and his candidate for Congress, son of the late Assemblyman John S. Watson.
"She has supported me in the past and her father supported my father and vice versa," the county executive said.
