With the Primary Election little more than a month away, races are heating up. That goes for a locally contested that has national implications.
Congressman Leonard Lance, R-07, is running for re-election this year and is being challenged by David Larsen. If that sounds familiar, well, that’s because it is.
The two Republicans have faced off twice in the past, with Lance winning in 2010 and 2012. The seventh congressional district represents dozens of towns across multiple counties, including Washington Township.
The candidate and the incumbent will take part in back-to-back debates this month, with a radio session set for 11 a.m. on Tuesday, May 27 on WRNJ (1510 AM, FM 92.7, and FM 104.7), and live in person from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the Holiday Inn in Clark, hosted by the Gateway Regional Chamber of Commerce.
