Sources in CD 3 say the contest to replace U.S. Rep. Jon Runyan has come down to a handful of candidates.

Backroom discussions continue right now concerning the prospects for the seat of Assemblyman David Wolfe (R-10), John Giordano, assistant commissioner for Compliance and Enforcement at the state's Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), and others.

A source told PolitickerNJ.com that others want the seat, including former Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan, Berkeley Twp. Mayor Tom MacArthur, and Evesham Mayor Randy Brown.

Veteran lawmaker Wolfe is making an aggressive push but Giordano has an edge based on his father's ability to fundraise, sources said.
