Bowser to run for re-election


East Orange Mayor Bob Bowser is running for re-election, the veteran politico told PolitickerNJ tonight.

The race promises to be closely watched as East Orange is the largest city in the 34th Lesgislative District. So far, Bowser has been neutral in the contest between incumbent Democratic state Sen. Nia Gill and Seton Hall Law Professor Mark Alexander.

"I don't think what he's doing tonight, the method by which he's doing it helps to build a trustful relationship."
