Langford for Blee

Lame Duck Atlantic City Mayor Lorenzo Langford is expected to endorse Republican incumbent Frank Blee for re-election in the increasingly competitive 2nd district Assembly race. Langford defeated one of Blee’s opponents, James Whelan, in the 2001 Democratic primary and then lost renomination last June to a Whelan ally, Robert Levy. Langford, according to a report by local radio host Harry Hurley, will only endorse one candidate for the two seats — taking a pass on Democrat Damon Tyner, the son of a longtime Atlantic City Councilman, and GOP incumbent Kirk Conover. Langford will appear on Hurley’s radio show tomorrow, and Hurley says he will urge him to back Conover too.
