Donald Payne Loses Battle with Cancer

Sad news this morning: Donald Payne (D-Newark), who was the first New Jersey African American to serve in the United States Congress, has lost his battle with cancer.

He was 77 years old.

Thank you for your service to New Jersey, Mr. Payne.

We may not have always agreed with you here at Save Jersey on points of policy, but we pray for you and your family in this difficult hour.

Rest in peace.
