Carmelo Garcia wins NJ Appellate Court appeal to run in June 4th primary for Assembly

In a brief phone interview, Carmelo Garcia confirmed he's won his appeal to the NJ Appellate Court so he can run for Assembly in the 33rd legislative district.  The appeal overturns the Hudson County Superior Court decision he could not run in a partisan NJ race under state law.

The NJ Appellate Court reportedly referenced the updated federal Hatch Act as a reason in its decision in siding against existing NJ law.  The vote by the Appellate Court was 2-0.

MSV is awaiting further details on the legal decision and official statements from both sides.
