The campaign of U.S. Rep. John Adler (D-Cherry Hill) charged at Republican 3rd District victor in a statement issued after Runyan’s victory.
“I hope Jon Runyan shows more respect for his fellow citizens starting tomorrow than we have seen from him in the last fifteen years,” said Adler campaign manager Geoff Mackler. “Most Americans play by the rules, pay their taxes on time, and vote in elections. Mr. Runyan hid from voters, insulted veteran groups, and refused to answer how he stood on the major issues of the day. The last thing we need in Washington is another wealthy extremist trying to buy an election and continuing to ignore the struggles middle class families and seniors face in these challenging times. We need problem solvers to fix what’s wrong with Washington, not folks like Jon Runyan looking to protect the privileges of the special interests.”
