Republican biotech millionaire John Crowley of Princeton may run for the United States Senate, according to his friend and political confidant, Bill Spadea.
"John Crowley is very seriously looking at a run for U.S. Senate," Spadea told PolitickerNJ.com. "If he decides to become a candidate he would have a great appeal with Republicans and across the aisle with Democrats."
New Jersey native. Son of a cop who died while on duty. Navy intelligence officer. Businessman. Family man. Founder of a company dedicated to discovering a cure for his children's rare disease. Subject of a motion picture starring Harrison Ford.
Even his detractors within the party acknowledge it's tough to argue with his story.
"I would say that what appears early to be a crowded field is telling in the sense that people see opportunity," Spadea said of 2012, when U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez, (D-NJ), is due up for re-election.
To date, state Sen. Joe Kyrillos, (R-13), has opened an exploratory committee for U.S. Senate, state Sen. Mike Doherty, (R-23), is mulling a run, Bergen attorney Ian Linker is a declared candidate and today state Sen. Tom Kean, Jr., (R-21), didn't rule out a second challenge of Menendez.
Spadea today wouldn't comment on a Crowley timeline.

"As soon as you step into the lake on foot or in a boat, you're in the state's domain. I feel bad for the snake, and I hope it gets rescued before it dies when it gets cold. It didn't mean to get let out there. This snake should be one thing we can get together on and not worry about party affiliation. Unless the snake's a Democrat." - Republican Mount Arlington Mayor Arthur Ondish- PolitickerNJ
