“It is truly an honor to have been asked to run for my party’s nomination in the 3rd congressional district. In the last few weeks, I have been moved and encouraged by the response I have received from many supporters in Burlington and Ocean counties,” said Lampitt in a statement.
“After giving this opportunity a great deal of consideration, I believe the way I can best serve our state is to continue representing the 6th legislative district. From paid sick leave to wage equity, there is still a lot of work to be done in New Jersey. I look forward to continuing my work on these issues and representing our district with my great colleagues Majority Leader Lou Greenwald and Senator Jim Beach.”
