Businessman Peter DeNeufville (R), a former fundraiser for Chris Christie’s (R) presidential campaign, is reportedly “seeking support for the seat” Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R) “will vacate at the end of the year—some say with encouragement from the former governor. He is expected to self-fund his campaign.”

DeNeufville, a former Navy reserve officer, has five days to file in the Republican primary against leading candidates Assemblyman Jay Webber (R) and hedge fund manager Antony Ghee (R). A late minute entry by a wealthy candidate could further complicate the GOP primary for a seat the Republicans have held for the last 34 years.” (New Jersey Globe)
