Source: Singh will drop U.S. Senate bid, run for Congress

By David Wildstein, February 16 2018 3:33 pm

Hirsh Singh, a software engineer from Atlantic County who was prepared to spend $2 million on a bid for the Republican U.S. Senate nomination, has agreed to switch to the race for Frank LoBiondo’s congressional seat, sources say.

Singh spent $1 million on an unsuccessful campaign for Governor in 2017, finishing third in the Republican primary.

Republicans have been unable to attract a top tier candidate to replace LoBiondo, putting the GOP in danger of losing a seat they had held easily for the last 24 years.   Sources say that party leaders in South Jersey have agreed to endorse Singh for Congress.  The front-runner to win the seat for the Democrats is State Sen. Jeff Van Drew (D-Dennis).

That removes the only well-funded challenger to Hugin in the Senate primary.  Attorney Dana Wefer and businessman Brian Goldberg are expected to wage grass-roots, low-budget Senate bids.
