Really? Another Camden county candidate? The campaign address isn't even in the 3rd congressional District. And his youth and inexperience (DofB) is on question.

Robert, welcome to the race - hope to see you tomorrow at the Asbury Park Press Editorial Board. One question - will YOU sign the "Change the Rules" Pledge? For the rest of the folks out there - Tired of the status quo? Unwilling to surrender to the two Georges? (Gilmore and Norcross?) I am running with (Independent) Democratic-Republicans for Freeholder, Donald E. Letton and Kim Johnson, for the seat that is open to election on November 6th for the NJ Third Congressional District. We have joined together to restore the application of the Constitution - the WHOLE Constitution, and to seek out, expose, and excise any local, county, State, and National corruption we can find. Our proposal, the "Change the Rules" Pledge, offers a solution to campaign finance reform that circumvents the Supreme Court decision of Citizens United v. Federal Election Board. I would welcome the opportunity to speak with the people of your community. Less than a month remains. "Stand for what's right, or settle for what's left" - Frederick John LaVergne, "Democratic-Republican" for Congress, NJ District Three.

I believe, with your history background, you will find the lawsuit compelling recognition of the ratification of, and application of, "Article the First" of the Bill of Rights - we discovered Connecticut's and Kentucky's ratification votes from their respective State Legislatures. It has been the law of the land since 1792, and no one knew. wcprv@hotmail.com - e-mail me for the information on both the Pledge and Article the First. Were you further aware that the Republican party failed to "poll" in the June primary?

Oh wow! Jon Runyan is the man! Thanks for serving us Congressman Runyan! We look forward to seeing you soon! You are everywhere to meet with us discuss the issues in the 3rd district when not in DC. Let's rally behind Runyan for Congress!
