The early polling shows that no one knows who he is, so Republican Tom MacArthur peppered the 3rd Congressional District with positive mailers over the weekend.
He will also go up on cable television this week with his first introductory ad of the primary season, just days after shellacking Steve Lonegan at the Ocean County GOP Convention.
MacArthur erased Lonegan in both Ocean and Burlington, where he will have the line in time for their June Primary showdown.
A movement conservative with at least three statewide runs under his belt, Lonegan dismissed MacArthur’s win last Wednesday as the nefarious handiwork of a tired Republican establishment looking to prop up a millionaire who doled at least $25,000 to the organization.
A day after the convention, Lonegan dropped his own mail piece in the 3rd District.
