A former White House aide is set to challenge Congressman Frank LoBiondo.

According to the South Jersey Times, Dave Cole, a resident of Gloucester County, will run as a Democrat. A formal announcement is coming next week; he is said to already be raising money.

Cole tells the South Jersey Times, "We’ve got huge unemployment. Families I've been talking to, even if they’re not facing unemployment, people are having a harder time making ends meet. We're trying to figure out how we can make sure everyone who’s looking for a job can find one."

It's becoming a crowded race already as Democrat Bill Hughes kicked off his campaign for the same seat last year.
