U.S. Rep. Frank LoBiondo (R-2) continues to contact powerful financial allies in the party to tell them he plans to count on their support toward another term in Congress.
Sources say the veteran congressman is about a month or two ahead of his normal fundraising intensification schedule heading into a re-election year.
He’s not panicking or even overly-concerned, just doing his due dilligence, a source told PolitickerNJ.com.
Attorney Bill Hughes, son of the former congressman of the same name, has already declared his CD2 candidacy. A Democrat, Hughes was at the League of Municipalities conference in Atlantic City last week trying to drum up support for his challenge of LoBiondo.
