Mo Hill Drops Bid in NJ3

February 24, 2010

Mo Hill

Earlier today, Toms River Councilman Maurice “Mo” Hill announced he will not seek support to run for Congress in the 3rd District, noting “This was an extremely difficult decision to make. But this is a district that traditionally supports Republicans and I believe that Jon Runyan will have the necessary resources to defeat Congressman Adler and take this seat back.”

Hill’s press release on the announcement can be found here.

CCGOP Chairman Rick DeMichele issued the following statement upon news of the announcement:

“I spoke earlier this week with Toms River Councilman Mo Hill who informed me that he will no longer be seeking the Republican nomination in New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional District and that he will be supporting Jon Runyan’s candidacy. As such, he will forgo speaking at tomorrow’s Camden County Lincoln Day Dinner as to allow for Mr. Runyan to be the focal point of the evening.

“Dr. Hill’s announcement is a testament to his own selfless leadership. While he would have made a strong candidate and equally outstanding Congressman, Dr. Hill recognizes the importance of teamwork and unity, and his commitment to stand behind Jon Runyan will prove an insurmountable force against John Adler this November.

“If, as one state Democrat leader recently stated, Rep. Adler is “freaking out” about his reelection prospects, this latest announcement should do nothing to calm his nervousness. Runyan’s blue-collar upbringing and work ethic will resonate with voters and prove a stark contrast to Adler’s out-of-touch Ivy League liberalism.”
