Despite the fact that he told South Jersey Republicans he plans to run for Rob Andrews’s House seat in November, Save Jerseyans, former NFL great Garry Cobb issued a less-than-committal statement through his spokesman on Monday evening following the campaign launch of his would-be presumptive opponent, state Senator Donald Norcross.
“I am giving the race very serious thought,” said Cobb. “Folks I talk to are very concerned about jobs and the economy. They want someone in this seat who is on their side, who puts them first, not the party bosses.”
