Twelve-term veteran Republican Frank LoBiondo (R-Ventnor City) announced that he will not seek re-election next year, placing a marginally political district into competition for the 2018 election cycle. Democrats had attempted to field strong candidates over the years against Mr. LoBiondo, but never came close to beating him. His 2016 victory of 59% was a typical re-election percentage throughout his long career. New Jersey’s 2nd District occupies the southernmost section of the state, anchored in Atlantic City, and stretching from Long Beach Island in the northeast down to the Cape May peninsula, and all the way across the state to the Delaware River opposite Wilmington.
