Kuehner to drop out of race

Joseph Kuehner, the mayor of Egg Harbor City and a Democratic candidate for the Assembly in district 2, is expected to announce tomorrow that he will drop out of the race, according to sources.

There has been speculation for several weeks that Kuehner, whose father is ill, would step aside. Kuehner has been running on a ticket with state Senate candidate James Whelan and Assembly candidate Blondell Spellman, both of Atlantic City.
