Here’s the first TV spot from Democrat Bill Hughes, who is challenging the heretofore comfortably entrenched Republican Frank LoBiondo. Hughes is the son of 20-year CD2 congressman William Hughes, who defeated LoBiondo when the Republican challenged him in 1992, then decided not to seek the seat after terms that kept him in Congress from 1975-1995.
Now his son, a former federal prosecutor, is challenging LoBiondo, in a campaign LoBo is trying unsuccessfully to ignore as he continues to cozy up to NJ’s economic failure Gov. Christie. Hughes is the only NJ House candidate on DCCC’s Emerging Races list. This is his first TV spot, up on both cable and broadcast, a six-figure media buy reaching the entire district – a district that’s hurting with the sinking fortunes of Atlantic City and tens of thousands of South Jerseyans out of work and getting, Hughes says, no leadership from their congressman.
What do you think, Blue Jersey?
