Sources: Belgard ready to run in CD3

Burlington County Freeholder Aimee Belgard, a Democrat, is set to announce her candidacy for Congress, according to sources in Burlington County. 

The Star-Ledger reported this morning that U.S. Rep. Jon Runyan (R-3) won’t pursue a third term in Congress.

Runyan was reportedly disgusted with the Tea Party in his caucus and has had enough, according to a source close to the congressman.

An attorney from Edgewater Park, Belgard has quit her job to focus fulltime on the race.

"This meeting is entirely off the record. Until somebody leaks it."
