This Thursday I will be interviewing Mike Assad who is challenging incumbent Republican U.S. Representative from New Jersey Frank LoBiondo for his 2nd Congressional District seat.
LoBiondo has held office for 19 years in south Jersey. According to the National Journal he has consistently been ranked as one of the most liberal Republicans in the House. Even the Club for Growth ranked him as the MOST liberal Republican in the House. I believe New Jersey can do better than this.
Everything I've read and heard about Mike Assad tells me he is just the type of representative south Jersey needs. Assad served multiple terms on the Absecon Board of Education and has a reputation for cost-cutting and fiscal responsibility. He supports the Second Amendment, is pro-life, favors energy independence, and has called for a full repeal of Obamacare. Tax reform, spending cuts and a balanced budget are also all part of his agenda. I think it's great that south Jersey has an alternative to the long-time, establishment candidate Frank LoBiondo.
