Weak turnout but no surprise on primary day

Here are the figures on today’s primaries.  Democratic turnout was less than 21% with most of the tallies in and the Republican vote was lower than that in Hudson County, just over 16%.

The winners are not in doubt (in red) with North Bergen State Senator Nick Sacco drawing almost 90% of the vote and more than 9,000 votes.

State Senator Brian Stack, unopposed in the 33rd District leads with over 13,00 votes.

In the Assembly race, Stack’s picks draw a far weaker 9,900 and 9,000 votes between Carmelo Garcia and Raj Mukherji respectively.

Hoboken Republican James Sanford will face State Senator Brian Stack in November.
