Sources: News 12’s McQueeny mulls congressional bid

PALISADES PARK – Jim McQueeny, host of Power and Politics on News 12, is mulling a run for Congress in the 5th Congressional District, sources tell PolitickerNJ.com.

After leaning toward a candidacy, former Giants star Harry Carson on Tuesday told Democrats he wouldn’t run against U.S. Rep. Scott Garrett, (R-5), an opening that caused McQueeny to spring into action.

Sources say McQueeny – a former reporter, is exploring a bid and would decide in the next week or two.
