Democrat Donald Norcross made his announcement Tuesday afternoon, just hours after Rep. Rob Andrews said he would step down from his seat representing New Jersey’s 1st District later this month.

Norcross is electrician by trade who serves as assistant business manager for a local of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. He has been in the state Senate since 2010.

He’s also the brother of George E. Norcross III, an insurance executive and chairman of Cooper University Hospital. While he does not have any official post, George Norcross is seen as the leader of southern Jersey’s Democrats.

Andrews on Tuesday said he would support Donald Norcross if he ran.
