Governor Christie to campaign for Tom MacArthur in Bordentown today

Gov. Chris Christie is slated to make a campaign stop for a Republican running for an open New Jersey House seat.

Christie will join Tom MacArthur and greet patrons at a diner in Bordentown Township on Thursday at 1 p.m.

MacArthur is running against Democrat Aimee Belgard in the 3rd Congressional District, which is split between Burlington and Ocean counties.

The seat is open because Republican Rep. Jon Runyan is not seeking re-election.

A recent poll found more likely voters surveyed had a favorable impression of MacArthur than Belgard.
