Cape May County Republicans are backing former Assemblyman Sam Fiocchi for Congress in New Jersey’s 2nd district. Fiocchi will run on the organization line with U.S. Senate candidate Bob Hugin in the June primary.
Cape May is 21% of the total vote in the Republican congressional primary.
Fiocchi, a former Cumberland County Freeholder who served one term in the legislature, is seeking the seat held for the last 24 years by Republican Rep. Frank LoBiondo.
So far, three candidates have won lines in four of the eight counties in LoBiondo’s district. Hirsh Singh has the lines in Ocean (10%) and Burlington, where just 199 votes were cast in the 2016 congressional primary. Somers Point Councilman James Toto has the line in Salem County (10%).
Five other Republicans are seeking the seat being vacated by LoBiondo: former Atlantic County Freeholder Seth Grossman, retired FBI agent Robert Turksavage, attorney John Zarych, Trump activist Mark McGovern, and defense contractor Brian Fitzherbert.
