Former Asbury Park Councilman Jim Keady, the man who provoked Governor Chris Christie into his famous “Sit Down and Shut Up” rant and then asked him out to dinner was easily defeated in his bid to become the Democrat nominee for the House of Representatives in New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional District.
Frederick John LaVergne will challenge Congressman Tom MacArthur the November general election. Based on unofficial results, LaVergne was the choice of 62.7% of CD-3 Democrats with 32,493 votes to Keady’s 19,347 votes.
LaVergne, who had the backing on the Burlington County Democrats, reportedly spent $600 on his primary campaign. Keady is reported to have spent $55,000.

In the race to replace Congressman Jon Runyan as the GOP nominee in the 3rd congressional district (Ocean and Burlington counties) former Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan is doing what anyone who has observed New Jersey politics for the last twenty years expected he would do. He’s attacking his opponent, former Randolph Mayor Tom MacArthur, as a tax and spend RINO who paid for the GOP establishment support. In the race between carpetbaggers, Lonegan is attacking MacArthur for be a worse carpetbagger.
MacArthur has the support of the Burlington and Ocean GOP machines. Lonegan, who beat Cory Booker in the district in last October’s special U.S. Senate election, has superior name recognition, a PolitickerNJ commissioned poll that gives him a huge lead, and his trademark attention getting rhetoric.
MacArthur counter-attacked Lonegan in a Open Letter last week by calling him desperate, negative, angry, caustic and creepy. All the things Lonegan’s supporters love about the guy.
MacArthur took particular umbrage to the fact that a Lonegan supporter did some opposition research by visiting the facebook page of MacArthur’s 16 year-old daughter and blogged anonymously about it.
Moreover, I am appalled that you are promoting an anonymous internet blog by a person or organization who has clearly spent a considerable amount of time spying on my 16-year old daughter’s Facebook page in search of an issue to use against her father in a political campaign.
Frankly, Steve, it’s creepy.
What salacious dirt did Lonegan’s blogger dig up on MacArthur’s daughter on facebook? She lists herself as a student at Randolph High School which is 90 miles away from the 3rd district.

Adler volunteer, a 64 year old social worker, caught photographing Runyan’s 8 year old daughter
Democrats are appearing increasingly desperate to maintain their power and the money that comes along with it.
We expect them to lie about their opponents and to make silly negative commercials that reveal how stupid they think voters are.
We expect them to play the race card and the scare the bejesus out of senior citizens card.
We’ve gotten used to lawn signs being stolen.
This year it looks like it is going to be worse. It is only September 15 and there are reports in Middletown of stolen signs and vandalism.
But the lowest of the low (so far) is Mr. Fredric C. Samson of Mt. Holly in Burlington County. Samson, a 64 year old licensed social worker photographed CD-3 GOP candidate Jon Runyan’s 8 year old daughter while she was playing in her front yard! Congressman John Adler’s campaign admits to sending a volunteer to photograph Runyon’s house! What for? The Adler campaign is already running commercials with picture of Runyan’s house in them.
You would think a social worker would be sensitive enough or smart enough to go get a cup of coffee and come back and shoot the photos when the your girl was not in the picture.
Samson is no political novice. The Courier-Post reports that he is a Burlington County Democratic Committeeman. He’s a member of the Mt. Holly Historic Preservation Commission.
I’ve got $50 bucks that say he’s a social worker employed by the government.
