Don’t expect a congressional debate in the 2nd district this year. Republican Congressman Frank LoBiondo turned down the option of a debate with Cassandra Shober, who is running as a Democrat. The debate would have taken place at Richard Stockton College. LoBiondo’s campaign said that the way Shober was running her campaign did not make her seem like a credible candidate. LoBiondo has held the seat for 18 years.
