|Forty-four Bergen County towns are in the 5th Congressional District, where Teaneck Deputy Mayor Adam Gussen hopes to defeat arch-conservative Rep. Scott Garrett, R-Wantage (Wikipedia)|
In the 5th Congressional District race, The Record's Editorial Page on Tuesday endorsed Democrat Adam Gussen over Rep. Scott Garrett, the no-tax, no-spend, no-compromise Republican.
Unfortunately, because of Hurricane Sandy, the newspaper was unable to deliver a copy to all of its subscribers.
The 5th District now includes 44 towns in Bergen County.
The endorsement of Gussen is in contrast to how little attention the local assignment editors paid to him.
Editors Deirdre Sykes and Dan Sforza essentially wrote off Gussen's candidacy, while publishing column inch after column inch about the arch-conservative from far-off Wantage.
Gussen is deputy mayor in Teaneck.
Originally, I said incorrectly the endorsement came on Monday.
