Atlantic freeholder will challenge Van Drew

Atlantic County Freeholder Ashley Bennett will seek the Democratic nomination for Congress in New Jersey’s 2nd district.

The New Jersey Globe first reported last night that she spoke with local Democrats about getting into the race soon after learning that incumbent Jeff Van Drew was switching parties.

Another Atlantic County woman, political science professor Brigid Harrison Callahan, is expected to announce her congressional bid on Monday.

Bennett won her District 3 freeholder seat in 2017 amidst a backlash stemming from misogynistic statements made by the GOP incumbent, John Carman.
