One of Mr. Malinowski’s volunteer organizers, Lacey Rzeszowski, lives on the same block as Mr. Hugin in Summit, N.J. On both days this weekend, her house served as the headquarters for canvassing efforts for Mr. Malinowski in the town. Hundreds of people streamed across her lawn and then out into the neighborhood in support of Mr. Malinowski.
On Saturday, the turnout was so overwhelming that the police temporarily shut down the block.
Mr. Malinowski shared the news with Mr. Hugin’s opponent, Senator Bob Menendez, at a Union County get-out-the-vote breakfast on Sunday morning, noting, “Senator Menendez will like this story.”
