George E. Norcross III said Monday that he had bought out one of his partners in the company that owns The Inquirer, becoming the majority owner of the newspaper as he and other partners battle in court over control of the company. In a statement from his spokesman, Norcross said his General American Holdings firm had bought the shares of Krishna P. Singh, one of his allies in the ongoing ownership feud. Norcross now owns about 52 percent of Interstate General Media, which operates The Inquirer, the Philadelphia Daily News, and Philly.com.

ISSUE | CAMPAIGN 2016 Law over Norcross I just voted by mail for Alex Law to be the Democratic nominee for Congress in New Jersey's First District because he will be stronger on the environment and nuclear nonproliferation. As a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and retired Navy captain who is concerned about the safety of our country, I am especially dismayed at the lack of political courage of the incumbent, Rep. Donald Norcross, to support the international nuclear deal with Iran - an agreement overwhelmingly supported by apolitical experts who monitor compliance.

State Sen. Donald Norcross decisively defeated Republican challenger and former Eagles linebacker Garry Cobb in New Jersey's heavily Democratic First Congressional District race, according to unofficial election results. South Jersey Democrats raised $1.8 million for the race - more than 10 times Cobb's camp - to ensure the win. A Republican has not held the seat since 1965. Five independent challengers defeated were Mike Berman, Margaret Chapman, Donald Letton, Robert Shapiro and Scot Tomaszewski.

About 150 protesters gathered during a muggy three hours Monday outside a Cherry Hill restaurant where U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was attending a fund-raiser for State Sen. Donald Norcross' congressional campaign. Inside Caffe Aldo Lamberti, Norcross, Reid, and a swath of supporters from South Jersey and beyond dined on $2,600 per-plate meals at the private event. Norcross is the Democratic nominee for the First District seat vacated in February by Robert E. Andrews. He will face Republican Garry Cobb, a former Philadelphia Eagle, on Nov. 4. The district contains most of Camden County and part of Gloucester County.

TRENTON - State Sen. Donald Norcross raised $379,000 in the first quarter of 2014 for his First District congressional bid, which led campaign-finance filings disclosed Tuesday for South Jersey candidates for Congress. Fund-raising reports by the five other candidates for the First District seat were not available on the Federal Election Commission's website by Tuesday evening. The seat was vacated in February when U.S. Rep. Robert E. Andrews resigned to take a job with a Philadelphia law firm.

Inquirer co-owner Lewis Katz says his rival business partner George E. Norcross III is mounting a public-relations campaign of "innuendos and lies" to help wrest control of the newspaper and its parent company. In his first extensive interview since the owners launched separate legal battles to end their partnership and sell off the company, Katz renewed his contention that Norcross was determined to reshape the Inquirer newsroom and influence its coverage. "It's very plain what he's doing and what he wants to do with the newspaper," Katz said Thursday.

Norcross knows jobs U.S. Rep. Donald Norcross (D., N.J.) has the right plan for our economy: more jobs and better wages. He knows how to create jobs because he's been doing it his whole career. Construction, manufacturing, health care, technology - he's had a hand in bringing it to South Jersey. And he knows that good jobs need good pay, since he's been an electrician. That's why he's been vocal about the need to raise the minimum wage, get equal pay for women, and raise incomes for seniors who worked all their lives for a good retirement.

WILMINGTON - Inquirer co-owner George E. Norcross III testified Monday that the newspaper's parent company was in a "tenuous" position after losing money the last two years and needed to quickly settle its ownership dispute through a private auction. To maintain what stability it has, Norcross also said, the company's editorial focus needs to shift to a "hyper-local" strategy of covering news. The March 2012 partnership agreement between Norcross and co-owner Lewis Katz gave each veto power over key decisions.

State Sen. Donald Norcross will be sworn in as the First District's congressman Wednesday, and his replacement in Trenton is expected to be named shortly. Norcross, a Camden County Democrat who defeated Republican Garry Cobb in Tuesday's election with 57 percent of the vote, will be sworn in at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in the House of Representatives on Capitol Hill, his campaign said. Norcross, 55, replaces former U.S. Rep. Robert E. Andrews (D., N.J.), who resigned in February to take a job with the Philadelphia law firm Dilworth Paxson L.L.P.

Newark Mayor Cory Booker scored a major endorsement Sunday night in his bid to become the next U.S. senator from New Jersey. George E. Norcross III, the insurance executive and hospital chairman who is seen as the most powerful figure in New Jersey Democratic politics, told The Inquirer he was endorsing Booker over two congressmen and a top state legislator expected to run in the August primary. Norcross is a managing partner of the company that owns The Inquirer. His connections to trade labor unions and business leaders mean he can quickly raise money in the unusual, shortened primary campaign and mobilize get-out-the-vote efforts on and before Election Day. His endorsement also suggests Democrats across South Jersey, and perhaps the state, will fall in line and support Booker's candidacy.

A three-judge panel on Thursday upheld the constitutionality of a law that enabled Cooper University Health Care to provide paramedic and ambulance service in Camden, overturning a lower-court ruling. Cooper's paramedics and emergency medical technicians will continue to serve the city as they have since January, under a law signed by Gov. Christie in July 2015. Ordinarily, a provider must apply to the state health department to offer emergency medical services. Virtua Health, the previous provider of paramedic service in Camden, contended that the law was specially tailored to favor Cooper and was therefore unconstitutional.

On June 7, in a funky upstairs office at the SoHa Arts Building in Haddon Township, Alex Law choked back tears - not entirely successfully - as he thanked a room full of volunteers for their efforts on his congressional campaign, an effort that he had just learned failed by 40 points. In the eight weeks since he lost a hard-fought primary to incumbent Rep. Donald Norcross, Law, 25, has moved into a new apartment in Collingswood, free-lanced as a consultant for small businesses in Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey, and made public appearances with likely 2017 gubernatorial candidate Steve Fulop.

As he celebrated a hard-fought win in his congressional primary against 25-year-old challenger Alex Law on Tuesday night, Rep. Donald Norcross shared the room - and the spotlight - with a watch party for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. And yet, he and George E. Norcross III, two brothers behind one of New Jersey's most powerful political machines, are the only two of the state's 16 party "superdelegates" who have not yet publicly committed to a presidential candidate.

Alex Law was still too young to serve in Congress when he started running for it in 2014 - a year and a half before he turned 25 in March. And then he got clobbered in Tuesday's Democratic primary. Unlike his First Congressional District opponent, U.S. Rep. Donald Norcross, the brash NYU grad from Voorhees possessed neither a political resumé nor a political machine. But Law, with a face made for Facebook, quickly became a savvy and sassy presence on social media. He refused to shut up, publishing anti-Norcross screeds on platforms such as the Huffington Post.

U.S. Rep. Donald Norcross swept to an easy victory Tuesday to win the First Congressional District Democratic primary in New Jersey. In his first reelection bid, Norcross beat back a challenge by Alex Law, who was running for office for the first time. In unofficial returns, Norcross won with 70 percent of the vote. He emerged from an unexpectedly hotly contested and expensive House race to represent the heavily Democratic district, which covers parts of Camden and Gloucester Counties as well as Maple Shade and Palmyra in Burlington County.

Five days before Tuesday's primary, a debate in the hotly contested First Congressional District race was abruptly canceled. The Gloucester County NAACP, the debate's organizer, said in a statement that a brewing dispute with Democratic candidate Alex Law and his campaign prompted the civil rights organization to halt Thursday's scheduled debate. "The attempt by the Alex Law campaign to hijack the debate by engaging in campaign charades devoid of any substance on issues important to minorities and the general population, has prompted us to cancel this debate," said Loretta Winters, president of the Gloucester County NAACP.

The CHAA will be funded by an initial investment of $1 million from the Cooper Foundation, the charitable arm of Cooper University Health Care, and the Norcross Foundation and AmeriHealth New Jersey, Norcross said.
