Mole for Congress

There is a possible third candidate in the already contested race for the Democratic congressional nomination in the fifth district: Jim Morrison, who gained some fame four years ago as a contestant in the TV reality show The Mole, is exploring a bid to take on two-term Republican Congressman Scott Garrett. Morrison, an openly gay attorney and helicopter pilot from Sussex County, won a write-in campaign for the Democratic State Senate nomination in 2003. Charles Cart, then the Sussex Democratic Chairman (now under indictment) called on him to withdraw from the race. Garrett’s 2004 opponent, Dorothea Anne Wolfe, and Paul Aronoshn, who was Governor James E. McGreevey’s press secretary, are actively seeking the nomination. Another possible candidate, Alpha Mayor Harry Zikas, pulled out of the race in September.
