A Mon­mouth Uni­versity poll (May 12-14; 505 LVs; +/-4.4%) shows former Ran­dolph May­or Tom Ma­cAr­thur (R) lead­ing former Bogota May­or Steve Loneg­an (R) with 46 per­cent of the vote to Loneg­an’s 35 per­cent. The res­ults are a ma­jor turn­around from a March 11 poll in which Loneg­an re­ceived 41 per­cent and Ma­cAr­thur only re­ceived 2 per­cent.

Ma­cAr­thur is backed by the Re­pub­lic­an Party in both counties in the dis­trict, and has been en­dorsed by re­tir­ing Rep. Jon Run­yan and the U.S. Cham­ber of Com­merce. Loneg­an had a name-re­cog­ni­tion ad­vant­age early on after an un­suc­cess­ful Sen­ate run against Sen. Cory Book­er (D). The win­ner of the Re­pub­lic­an primary will face Bur­l­ing­ton County Free­hold­er Aimee Bel­gard (D). (Roll Call)
