The pool of Republican candidates pursuing CD3 is getting larger.

Randolph Township Mayor Tom MacArthur told PolitickerNJ he’s actively pursuing a run to fill the federal seat slated to be vacated by U.S. Rep. Jon Runyan (R-3).

“I’m actively pursuing this. I’m more than interested,” MacArthur said.

The mayor worked in the insurance industry for 30 years and as the chairman and CEO of York Risk Services Group Inc. for 11 years, according to the township’s website.

“My wife and I are in the process of transitioning to Ocean County,” he said. “We made a decision that that was going to become our permanent residence a couple years ago.”

MacArthur said he’s speaking with Republican Party leadership in Ocean and Burlington counties.

State Assemblyman David Wolfe (R-10) and Berkeley Township Council President James Byrnes are also pursing a run for the federal seat.
