It looks like John McCann is preparing to seek a rematch with Rep. Josh Gottheimer next year.
McCann has launched a newly-designed website with an updated campaign logo.
The sites says that “John McCann is a conservative Republican running for U.S. Congress in New Jersey’s Fifth District.”
McCann’s Twitter account also uses the new logo and continues to identify him as a candidate for Congress.
This could also be a revamped site to help McCann pay off his campaign debt – most of it owed to himself.
Gottheimer defeated McCann, a former Cresskill councilman, by 41,291 votes (56%-42%) in 2018.
McCann raised $937,522 for his challenge to Gottheimer, known as the Human Fundraising Machine. He loaned $534,620 to his own campaign, according to reports filed with the Federal Election Commission.
He still owes $35,000 to the Strategic Campaign Group, a political consulting firm, and has $1,054 cash-on-hand.
McCann has not filed any new campaign organization with the FEC.
Republicans have been searching for a self-funder to challenge Gottheimer in 2020.
One potential candidate is Tim Luing, whose family owns the for-profit Berkeley College.
McCann did not immediately respond to a 1:23 PM call and text seeking comment.
