There’s no indication yet that NJ-7 is competitive in 2012, Save Jerseyans, but incumbent U.S. Representative Leonard Lance (R-NJ) isn’t taking any chances between now and Primary Day.
He’s live with a new 30 second TV commercial touting his purported conservative credentials:
Lance faces a June primary challenge from David Larsen (R-Tewksbury Township), a North Jersey businessman who has been particularly critical of Rep. Lance’s unfortunate vote in favor of Cap and Trade (which earned him plenty of harsh criticism from your Blogger-in-Chief).
Larsen previously challenged Lance in the 2010 GOP primary. Rep. Lance won by a solid margin, garnering 16,890 votes to Mr. Larsen’s 9,381 votes.
