“We’re still a bit optimistic, but I mean you know it is what it is. It’s cancer.”

The NJ-10 congressman, 77, is being treated for colon cancer, which he made public in January. He has said he has no plans to step down or take a leave of absence and wants to retain his seat.

We wish the congressman the best outcome possible, and the peace and quiet he may need to fight his illness.
