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.

"Gov. Chris Christie says he won’t campaign for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York because the cause is hopeless: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ahead by more than 30 points. But he will campaign in New Hampshire, over and over, where the Republican is also trailing by more than 30 points. What’s the reason? It may be that New Hampshire holds the nation’s first presidential primary. It may be that he doesn’t want to mess with Cuomo, who knows where the skeletons are buried at the Port Authority. But one thing is certain: Gov. Straight Talk is spinning again. And it seems to be habit-forming." - columnist Tom Moran- Star-Ledger
