Mercer Dems back Holt for U.S. Senate

U.S. Rep. Rush Holt will run in the U.S. Senate special election Democratic Primary with the slogan of the Mercer County Democratic Committee.

The committee this afternoon officially awarded the slogan to its home county congressman from Hopewell.

"He’s obviously working very, very hard at it. I mean he’s traveling all over the country as chairman of the [Republican Governors Association] and I think at this point he has as good a chance or better than anybody else. His name is household word all across the country, and I think he would make a great president."
