Northfield Democratic Club offers forum for congressional candidates

Vote

NORTHFIELD — The Northfield Democratic Club said it's not too early to start thinking about the primary election in June and beyond to November. The club is holding a forum Wednesday, Feb. 21, and Democratic candidates who have announced their intent to seek their party’s nomination for the 2nd Congressional District seat are scheduled to attend.

When U.S. Rep. Frank LoBiondo announced he would not seek another term, candidates on both sides of the aisle with an interest in heading to Washington DC to represent South Jersey began to declare their interest in the seat. LoBiondo has been in Congress since 1995.

Eileen Toland, chairwoman of the Northfield Democratic Club, said candidates who have been invited to attend the forum include Democrats Tanzie Youngblood, Will Cunningham, Sean Thom and 1st Legislative District state Sen. Jeff Van Drew. 

The public can send questions for the candidates by emailing eftoland@comcast.net

The forum is a free community event and will begin at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 21, at the Harvey D. Johnson American Legion Post 295, 232 W. Mill Road, Northfield, across from the Otto Bruyns Northfield Library, where parking is available.
