It seems State Senator Chris Connors is leaning against a run in the 3rd district. This leaves the door open for ex-Eagles football player Jon Runyan to become the nominee since there doesn’t seem to be any credible opposition.
Connors offered the best hope for the GOP since he is very popular in Ocean County and would have likely gotten the same margin as Chris Christie. It’s puzzling he wouldn’t take a shot at running for Congress since this is probably the best chance he’ll ever have.
I can’t see Runyan defeating Adler. He’s a political novice who didn’t even register as a Republican until a few weeks ago. He probably hasn’t even voted in many elections, and nobody seems to know anything about his views.
