NJ: Constitutionally Impaired Republican Congressman Will Face Challenge from Constitution Party Candidate

Remember Congressman Frank LoBiondo?  He is the Republican lawmaker whose gross ignorance of the Constitution was revealed at a town hall meeting earlier this year.  LoBiondo was embarrassingly stumped when asked about Article 1 Section 1 of the Constitution, and stuttered that it might have something to do with freedom of speech.  Peter Boyce plans to challenge LoBiondo this November under the banner of the Constitution Party.  From NJ.com:
Peter Boyce grew up in one of the poorest families in the Bronx, New York, but made himself into a millionaire by the age of 30. He did it through hard work on his own merit.

Now, he’s made it his mission to ensure that future generations of Americans can aspire to do what he did by preserving the freedoms that allowed him to accomplish his goals in the first place.
Boyce, currently a Millville resident, will be running for Congress in New Jersey’s 2nd Congressional District in November’s midterm elections. He will be running as a candidate for the Constitution Party, whose core belief is that representatives must always vote in line with the Constitution, something Boyce feels very few current representatives do today.

Like most Constitutional Moderates, a group which has dominated South Jersey politics for over half a century, I'm thankful to have a good Conservative to vote for this time who stands for my values, not the values of Washington insiders.
