Investment banker Frank Pallotta (R) says he is going to soon form a congressional exploratory committee comprised of “industry leaders and experts” to help him assess his chances of unseating two-term Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-Wycoff) next year.
Mr. Gottheimer unseated veteran Republican Rep. Scott Garrett in 2016 and was easily re-elected in November with 56.2% of the vote. The 5th District has typically performed as a Republican seat until 2016, so the GOP looking to target this district is realistic, especially if they have a candidate with financial wherewithal.
