Logan Township Mayor Minor, Donald Norcross Will Battle Replace Rob Andrews
By David Madden
LOGAN TOWNSHIP, N.J. (CBS) - Looks like there will be a primary fight in June for the congressional seat vacated last month by South Jersey Democrat Rob Andrews.
Logan Township Mayor Frank Minor is expected to announce his candidacy for the open seat. He’s been in office 11 years and also works as a top official at the Delaware River and Bay Authority. The only announced Democrat in the race, state senator Donald Norcross, has much of the announced official party support. But Minor is undaunted.
“I don’t have the resources to compete with the Norcross machine obviously. We’ll run a spirited campaign,” Minor tells KYW Newsradio. “We’ll run a campaign based upon the issues and the qualifications and we’ll run a campaign with whatever resources that I have at my disposal.”
He hopes to run what he calls a “positive campaign” and insists his record of keeping taxes low in Logan Township will resonate with Democrats in the First District.
