Ex-prosecutor won’t challenge Adler

Former Assistant U.S. Attorney David Leibowitz has dropped his bid for the Republican nomination for Congress in the 3rd district, according to Camden County GOP Chairman Rick DiMichele.

 “Yesterday I spoke with Dave Leibowitz who informed me that he would no longer be seeking the Republican nomination in the Third Congressional District.  David would have been a great candidate and he remains someone with a bright future in the party.  I am sure we will see him continuing to fight on behalf of all citizens in some capacity, just as he did as an Assistant District Attorney,” DiMichele said. “His commitment to service epitomizes what New Jersey needs representing it in Washington.”

Former NFL star Jon Runyan has said he will challenge freshman U.S. Rep. John Adler (D-Cherry Hill) and is expected to file a campaign committee with the Federal Election Commission this month.  Retired Rear Admiral Moe Hill, a Toms River Councilman, is also mulling a bid.
