In the Second District, The Inquirer endorses eight-term incumbent FRANK LoBIONDO.
The moderate Republican congressman has an excellent record of service
and has ably represented the district, which encompasses all or part of
seven counties across the southern end of the state.
LoBiondo has token opposition from Democratic challenger Gary Stein of
Mullica Township in Atlantic County. Stein, who owns a commercial
cleaning business, has never held an elected office. He wrongly supports
offshore drilling. He can't match what LoBiondo offers to constituents.
the 2nd Congressional District, Republican U.S. Rep. Frank LoBiondo is
really the only choice. Of the candidates who appeared before our
board -- LoBiondo, Democrat Gary Stein and Constitution Party nominee
Peter Boyce -- LoBiondo was far and away the best candidate.
is disappointing that the Democratic Party chose not to field a
candidate in the race. Running under the Democrats' banner but without
party support is Gary Stein, a one-time janitor and self-proclaimed
everyman from Mullica Township who, unfortunately, offers voters no
reasonable choice in this race. Some of his ideas -- like getting rid
of cash altogether and issuing every American a debit card or dumping
all existing taxes and just having a national sales tax -- are from
leftfield. He's very determined to end corruption in Mexico, so much so
that he might make for a good elected official in that country.
