CD3 Update: MacArthur hires general consultant

Republican Congressional candidate Tom MacArthur has a general consultant in NJ-3.

Veteran Burlington County GOP operative Chris Russell is working for MacArthur.

Russell’s 2008 GOP Primary rival turned ally Frank Luna (a former Christie Administration staffer) of Ocean county is also on the campaign team and running the ground game leading into conventions.

MacArthur has not yet hired a Campaign Manager or anyone else on the team.

The move comes as former Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan and retired Navy Rear Admiral Mo Hill amp up their own efforts to succeed retiring U.S. Rep. Jon Runyan (R-3).

Both Lonegan and Hill today reached out to veterans in a show of support to veterans issues.
