EWING - The baby blue convertible bounced into the parking lot of the Ewing Community Center, and seconds later, Assemblywoman Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-15) alighted on the asphalt, beaming as she and her husband, the Rev. William Coleman, walked in to vote.

Watson Coleman's running for Congress in this competitive Democratic Primary to succeed U.S. Rep. Rush Holt.

"It's up to the people now," said the candidate, a veteran member of the Assembly with a longstanding liberal record. "I'm confident the people know how important this election is. They have an opportunity to elect a person who will go Washington, D.C. to work with President Barack Obama."

The candidate faces a stern rivalry in Middlesex County's state Sen. Linda Greenstein (D-14).

"We've done all the work," Watson Coleman told PolitickerNJ as she entered the community center. "We've done the canvassing, the phone banking, the door-to-door. The voters will decide." 

Assemblyman Upendra Chivukula (D-17) and plasma physicist Andrew Zwicker are also competiting in today's Democratic Primary eelction.

Quote of the Day

quote of the day

"Governor Christie ripped President Obama this summer for failing to carve out some time during a Texas fundraising swing to visit the Mexican border, where the unprecedented flood of immigrant children from Central America had reached a crisis point. ...Yet Christie is not squeezing in a tour of the troubled border during his own three-day trade and diplomatic mission to Mexico, which is set to begin on Wednesday. The governor is planning a series of meetings with Mexican officials, including President Enrique Peña Nieto and the finance and energy ministers." - columnist Charles Stile
