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.

This story is breaking.

Awaiting one NJ Appellate decision: the Garcia & HCDO case

The calendar is ticking with a June 4th primary in the distance for the 33rd Assembly seat.  The ticket is up in the air as Carmelo Garcia awaits the NJ Appellate Court verdict on his candidacy.

The Hudson County Democratic Organization (HCDO) also awaits the decision.

Both received bad news in Hudson County Superior Court when Assignment Judge Peter Bariso ruled they were out of order with Garcia being disqualified based on existing NJ law and the HCDO being told it had made its pick in Garcia and the five remaining candidates wouldn't miss them.

Today could be the day.
