The mayor of Evesham Township is among the list of people exploring a possible run for U.S. Rep. Jon Runyan’s seat.
Mayor Randy Brown, an early supporter of Runyan, says people have contacted him to gauge his interest and that a run for Congress is something he’s seriously considering.
“Absolutely,” he told PolitickerNJ about a CD3 run. “People contacted me within the past 24 hours trying to gauge my interest and … I’m honored to even be discussed in the circle of people to even be considered.”
Brown said he is mulling a run with his advisors and family.
“Yes, we’re exploring it. It is really happening very fast,” he said.
He has served as mayor since 2007 and is up for re-election in 2014.
“I was one of the first ones that ever supported Jon Runyan,” he said. “I congratulate him on the work that’s he’s done … and I can only wish him the best going forward.”
Earlier today, PolitickerNJ reported Edgewater Park attorney Aimee Belgard, a Democrat, is exploring a run.
Runyan announced earlier today he will not seek another term.

"Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, a Hudson County Democrat, is balking. He claimed Tuesday that members of his caucus are divided over the measure and that his house is in no real rush – besides, even if enacted this year, the reforms would not take effect until 2017, he said. And with the growing belief that Christie could skip town to run for president, some Democrats are not eager to give him another talking point for his résumé. Christie’s plans to stump for Republican candidates in New Hampshire later Thursday only fuel that suspicion." - columnist Charles Stile- The Bergen Record
