Whelan launching re-election campaign next week

State Sen. Jim Whelan (D-2) will formally kick off his re-election bid on Feb. 27th at American Legion Post 295 in Northfield.

The veteran former mayor of Atlantic City is running with Assembly candidates Northfield Mayor Vince Mazzeo and Longport Mayor Nick Russo against a Republican ticket composed of Senate candidate Atlantic County Sheriff Frank Balles, and incumbent Assemblymen John Amodeo and Chris Brown. 

"The possible 2017 contender for the governorship shouldered Thanksgiving birds alongside Stack, who took the insanity of his annual turkey drive to another level this year, launching a 20,000-bird door-to-door offensive."
