Pascrell stumps in Bergen

When he learned he would be in a Democratic Primary dogfight, U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell vowed he would campaign vigorously in the bigger, Bergen portion of the 9th Congressional District.

This weekend, the Passaic-based Democrat did just that, campaigning door-to-door on Sunday in Englewood.

Pascrell partisans noted the symbolic importance of the Englewood angle for one of Pascrell’s earliest pavement pounding appearances.

That’s where Pascrell’s opponent, U.S. Rep. Steve Rothman, (D-9), grew up and served as mayor before moving to Fair Lawn.

"It’s not a political environment that’s particularly warm for incumbents, but it looks like Booker has little to be worried about as the campaign season draws to a close."
