2nd Time in the Past Week in the Daily Kos

2nd time in the past week in Daily Kos.  

 

NJ-11: Democratic Assemblyman John McKeon recently refused to rule out a bid against longtime GOP Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen in this North Jersey seat, and he now tells Politico that he’s spoken to the DCCC. However, McKeon also says he’s focusing on his re-election campaign this year. There’s nothing stopping McKeon from running for Congress after winning another term in the Assembly, but it would leave him with less time to fundraise for a House race in the ultra-expensive New York City media market. Frelinghuysen is the chair of the powerful House Appropriations Committee so he’ll have absolutely no trouble bringing in cash, and the congressman is personally wealthy to boot. This ancestrally red seat, which includes Morristown, swung from 52-47 Romney to 49-48 Trump.
