Inquirer endorses Adler over Runyan

The Philadelphia Inquirer this morning endorsed Democratic challenger Shelley Adler over incumbent U.S. Rep. Jon Runyan (R-3) in the 3rd Congressional District general election. 

“Conventional wisdom says Runyan will continue representing the traditionally conservative district that includes much of Burlington and Ocean Counties. But he has a formidable opponent,” The Inquirer writes. “Runyan’s advocacy for veterans and vote to contain student loan rates are noteworthy, but the 38-year-old Mount Laurel resident has been on the wrong side when it comes to tax and health-care issues affecting his district’s increasing senior population. The Inquirer endorses SHELLEY ADLER.”
