Republican Frank LoBiondo, first elected in 1994, is one of his party’s most moderate members, especially on labor and environmental matters. “LoBo,” as he is known to colleagues, keeps a low profile on Capitol Hill and seems content to climb the seniority ladder on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.

LoBiondo grew up in Vineland, on the vegetable farm his grandparents established after leaving Sicily. LoBiondo’s father started transporting his produce to market himself in a used truck, and as Atlantic City boomed in the early 20th century, he found that he could make a good living transporting the produce of other farmers as well. He created LoBiondo Brothers Motor Express, where his son worked when he was young.

In 1987, LoBiondo was elected to the New Jersey Assembly; there, he stoutly opposed new taxes and gun control laws. He ran against veteran U.S. Rep. William Hughes, a Democrat, in 1992 and lost 56%-41%. After Hughes decided to retire in 1994, LoBiondo ran again. In the primary, he competed with state Sen. William Gormley, whom LoBiondo portrayed as favoring tax increases and gun control laws. LoBiondo won 54%-35%, and then easily won the general election, 65%-35%.

In the House, LoBiondo has retained his conservative stance on gun control but has often bolted from his party on other issues. In the 111th Congress (2009-10), he joined Democrats in backing energy legislation instituting a “cap and trade” system on greenhouse-gas emissions, an expansion of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program, and food safety legislation. He also was a cosponsor of the so-called “card check” bill aimed at making it easier for employees to join unions. In 2008, LoBiondo voted against the massive bailout of the financial markets because, he said, taxpayers were not sufficiently protected.

He was among the New Jersey lawmakers incensed at House Speaker John Boehner in January 2013 for initially delaying a vote on disaster relief from Hurricane Sandy, and New Jersey news outlets reported that the two men got into an angry confrontation. “I’ve never been this angry. … This could have been a poster child for bipartisanship; instead, this is what we have,” LoBiondo told the website PolitickerNJ. He also took to the House floor to blast colleagues from disaster-prone areas for failing to be supportive. “Shame on you!” he said. “What does the misery index have to get to for our constituents?”

In 2013, LoBiondo took over as chairman of Transportation and Infrastructure’s Aviation Subcommittee, affording him an opportunity to help the William J. Hughes Technical Center near Atlantic City, the Federal Aviation Administration’s national scientific testing base. “I’ve said repeatedly that our tech center is a premier site ... and for whatever reason, they’ve been under-recognized and under-appreciated,” he told The Press of Atlantic City. He also faced the task of implementing the FAA’s Next Generation Air Transportation System, commonly known as NextGen. It covers a series of initiatives aimed at making air travel more efficient as it moves from a radar-based to a satellite-based system. He previously chaired the Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Subcommittee, a useful assignment for New Jersey. LoBiondo opposes oil drilling within 125 miles of the Jersey coast, and helped to enact the Delaware River Protection Act, increasing the liability for single-hull oil tankers that pollute.

On the Armed Services Committee, LoBiondo expressed reservations about the Iraq war, but he opposed efforts to set a timetable for troop withdrawals. He has opposed trying terrorists in civilian courts, and he’s lamented that homeland security has become “lost in the mix” of debates during the Obama administration years. Serving on the committee piqued his interest in joining the Select Intelligence Committee, and after years of trying he got a seat on that panel in the 112th Congress (2011-12). At the behest of Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., LoBiondo has concentrated on North Africa, considered a growing hotspot for terrorist activity.

When he was first elected, LoBiondo promised to serve no more than 12 years but has since broken that pledge. Still, he routinely wins reelection by comfortable margins.

Back to top NJ Vote Ratings

National Journal’s rating system is an objective method of analyzing voting. The liberal score means that the lawmaker’s votes were more liberal than that percentage of his colleagues’ votes. The conservative score means his votes were more conservative than that percentage of his colleagues’ votes. The composite score is an average of a lawmaker’s six issue-based scores.

Two organizations provide just one combined rating for 2011 and 2012, the two sessions of the 112th Congress. They are the ACLU and the ITIC. About the interest groups.
