Lesniak testing waters for possible governor campaign

Two statewide Democratic sources say allies of state Senator Ray Lesniak (D-20) are preparing to launch a political action committee (PAC) in support of a bid for the 2017 Democratic gubernatorial nomination, Mark Bonamo reports in PolitickerNJ..
“A likely scenario is that in March or April, you’ll see a PAC out there, urging Ray to run,” said one source. “And at that point, Ray will become a serious candidate, with donors putting up money to see it through. It’s no longer talk. It’s no longer rubber chicken dinners in Union County.”
While there is already a putative Democratic field for New Jersey governor in 2017 that includes Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop, state Senate President Steve Sweeney (D-3) and former U.S. Ambassador to Germany Phil Murphy, as well as potentially state Senator and former Governor Richard Codey (D-27), the source pointed to this field as proof that a Lesniak bid for governor is serious.
