LoBiondo challenger opts not to run

More than six months after he formed an exploratory committee to pursue a bid for Congress, Democrat Robin Benjamin Weinstein has decided against challenging Frank LoBiondo in the second district. Weinstein, 25, says he will instead run for the Woodstown Borough Council. LoBiondo won a 65%-33% victory over Brigantine Democratic Municipal Chairman Timothy Robb in 2004. Neither party believes LoBiondo, a six-term Congressman, is truly vulnerable, although some Democrats believe Assemblyman Jefferson Van Drew could someday emerge as a strong challenger.
