Save Jersey has called the contentious Republican primary in the third Congressional District for former Randolph Mayor Tom MacArthur.
In a contest of carpetbaggers to replace retiring Congressman Jon Runyan in the House of Representatives, MacArthur beat former Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan handedly.
With 70% of the votes counted in the Burlington County portion of the district and 63% counted in Ocean County, MacArthur is leading with 63% of the vote.
MacArthur will face off against Burlington County Freeholder Aimee Belgard in November. Belgard trounced Howard Kleinhendler of Lakewood with almost 80% of the vote. Kleinhendler was the Democratic nominee against Congressman Chris Smith in the 4th district in 2010.Posted: June 3rd, 2014 | Author: Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2014 Congressional Races, 2014 Elections, Steve Lonegan, Tom MacArthur | Tags: Aimee Belgard, CD-3 Tom MacArthur, Howard Kleinhendler, NJ-3, Steve Lonegan | 1 Comment »
