Attorney Michael Oren Epstein of Englewood this week announced that he will seek the Republican nomination for New Jersey’s 9th Congressional District.
“After a good deal of discussion with my family and friends and support from so many people throughout our community, I am excited to announce my candidacy for Congress,” said the business lawyer specializing in intellectual property and technology.
Married with four children, Epstein wants to challenge incumbent U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-9).
“I am steadfast in my belief that our country needs new leadership and a return to common-sense principles," Epstein ssaid. "I also firmly believe that intelligent people with differing views can work together to solve the significant issues that face our great country. It is time for Congress to right the ship. I am confident that, if given the opportunity, I can help accomplish that.“

"Christie’s method for coping with scandal has been more complicated. In January, the seemingly-local issue of lane closings on the George Washington Bridge, which created a massive traffic jam in the Hudson River town of Fort Lee, became one of national interest when it was revealed that one of Christie’s closest staffers had ordered them—for what looked like political retribution against a Democratic mayor. The scandal was quickly dubbed 'Bridgegate,' and unfortunately for Christie, it played into his reputation as a bully. Christie's response was to act unlike himself: humble." - Olivia Nuzzi- The Daily Beast
