Republican congressional candidate John McCann has still not filed his personal financial disclosure, according to a search of the Clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives website. The report was due on May 6.
McCann told the New Jersey Globe earlier this week that he was working on it. He said the delay was due to the illness of his accountant.
