Most New Jersey Dems fully behind Clinton — but not all

New Jersey’s Democratic delegation heads into the convention in Philadelphia strongly behind presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton.

But her primary campaign against Bernie Sanders has left some animosity in its wake.

Clinton handily defeated Sanders in New Jersey’s primary, but the campaign left some bitterness for the state’s Democrats after two superdelegates who backed Sanders were removed abruptly last month as members of the Democratic State Committee.

Assemblyman John Wisniewski is one of the people to lose his position. He says he and most other New Jersey Sanders delegates will ultimately support Clinton.

Assemblywoman Sheila Oliver says one highlight of the convention for her is a platform that will please progressives, including Sanders supporters.
