Runyan Set to Take on Adler!

June 9, 2010

Jon Runyan

From the NRCC:

After repeatedly supporting their party’s radical agenda, New Jersey Democrats have put themselves at risk of losing in November. Middle-class families are tired and angry with a Democrat majority that refuses to listen to them. As evidence, 60 percent of Independents sided with Republican Governor Chris Christie over Democrat incumbent Jon Corzine last November. With mounting frustration amongst voters and Democrats struggling to regroup after their loss of the Governor’s Mansion, New Jersey is prime territory for Republican gains this fall.

Jon Runyan’s victory tonight puts him on a path to take on John Adler and his partisan record of tax hikes and reckless spending.  Runyan’s drive to run for public office stems from the massive debt that is building up as a result of the big-government agenda of Adler and his Democratic colleagues.  Adler voted for the failed trillion-dollar stimulus bill, as well as his party’s budget with backbreaking tax hikes on small businesses, middle-class families and seniors. In the fall, Runyan will hold John Adler accountable for his record that has created more government, not jobs.

Jon Runyan is an accomplished leader both on and off the field. Whether it’s leading his football team to a Super Bowl appearance as a Pro-Bowl offensive tackle or studying entrepreneurial management at the prestigious University of Pennsylvania Wharton School of Business, Runyan’s work ethic has always led him to victory.  He is an avid volunteer, helping with countless charities and serving as a Board Member for the Alzheimer’s Association of the Delaware Valley and a five-time host of his own “Score for the Cure” Golf Tournament benefiting prostate cancer research in New Jersey.

History. Democrat incumbent John Adler rode Obama’s coattails to victory in 2008, narrowly winning with a marginal 52 percent of the vote in this swing district. Without Obama on the ticket, this R+1 district which elected President George W. Bush in 2004 and Governor Christie handily won by 17 percent, is prime for Republican taking.

Geography. New Jersey’s Third Congressional District includes Pine Barrens and large parts of Burlington and Ocean counties and the town of Cherry Hill. The majority of the district’s voters live in the South Jersey suburbs of Philadelphia.

    Sorry Jon. Your ” i don’t make the law I abide by it” and – I (Jon) pay $60,000 in property tax, including donkeys/wood tax break, will not hack it. The tax break is for people who make their living from the land. You are abiding by the law but NOT the intent!
