Former New Jersey Assemblyman Vince Polistina has exclusively confirmed to me that he is not running for The United States House of Representatives in New Jersey - District 2.

He wished all of the GOP candidates well.

Polistina would have been a very credible challenger for State Senator Jeff Van Drew.

This really opens up the Republican field. Known Republican candidates include Somers Point City Councilman James Toto; Former Supervisory Sr. FBI Agent Robert Turkavage; and Brian Fitzherbert, Textron Executive. Potential candidates include John Zarych, Esquire, and Seth Grossman, Esquire.
