Two men who worked for a Newark mayoral candidate have been indicted on allegations that they conspired to set Mayor Ras Baraka’s campaign bus on fire in February, prosecutors said Friday.
Ideally, Newark Mayor-elect Ras Baraka would like some time off after his win Tuesday. “But your mind is racing,” Baraka told WCBS 880’s Levon Putney on Wednesday.
City Councilman Ras Baraka declared victory Tuesday evening in the race for Newark mayor.
Voters in Newark will elect a new mayor on Tuesday, following a long, contentious and sometimes ugly campaign between the two Democratic candidates.
On May 13, voters will head to the polls for the first time since their mayor moved on the U.S. Senate, and as the election looms a battle is brewing between the two main candidates.
A second man has been charged with setting fire to a bus that belonged to the campaign of Newark mayoral candidate Ras Baraka.
A man was arrested Friday after a candidate for Newark mayor’s campaign bus was torched.
