TRENTON – Senate President Richard J. Codey (D-Essex) today released the following statement on the General Assembly’s expected approval of bill A4010/S2193, which would move New Jersey’s presidential primary election up to the first Tuesday in February:
“I’d like to thank Speaker Roberts and the full Assembly for their support of this measure.
“Now, New Jersey voters will finally have a voice in what is arguably the most crucial election of our generation.
“For too long New Jersey voters have been bystanders during this critical phase of the electoral process. Judging by the early visits we’ve already received from Presidential contenders, it’s clear that this bill has already begun to make us more than just an ATM machine for candidates.”
