Sources say that three northern New Jersey county Democratic leaders will ¬†announce their organizations will back Phil Murphy for Governor next year as early as tonight at North Bergen Mayor Nicholas Sacco’s annual fundraiser in Garfield.

Sacco’s party, being held in the middle of Bergen County, would allow the Democratic heads of Bergen and Passaic and possibly Essex counties to join Hudson’s Vincent Prieto (State Assemblyman) who would presumably be at the event.

The Democratic primary is held June 2017 and the general election for governor is still over one year away.
