Source: Worthy thinks he’s worthy of mayor’s seat

Mercer County Deputy Clerk Walker Worthy wants to run for mayor of Trenton, a source told PolitickerNJ.com.

The feds busted Mayor Tony Mack this morning and since that time operatives have been angling hard for the next chapter in the embattled capital city’s history.

Worthy is among those quietly building support for a run in the event that Mack resigns and a special election occurs.

"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."
