Former federal prosecutor Bill Hughes Jr. of Northfield, candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in New Jersey’s 2nd Congressional District, has received the endorsement of the Ocean City Democratic Club.

He is challenging veteran Republican House member Frank LoBiondo, whose seat is up for election in November 2014. Hughes is the son of former U.S. Rep. and Ambassador William J. Hughes of Ocean City.

“I’m honored to have the support of my hometown Democrats, the Ocean City Democratic Club and to be consolidating Democratic support across the district,” Bill Hughes Jr. said. “I am looking forward to working closely with their members for victory in November and to create jobs and economic opportunity for middle-class families, and to find solutions for South Jersey.”

Ocean City Democratic Club President Bobby Barr expressed his support for Hughes.

“We wholeheartedly endorse Bill Hughes in his bid for Congress,” Barr said. “The Hughes family has been longtime residents of Ocean City; we know them, we know Bill, and we look forward to working with him to expand upon the Hughes legacy in bringing real results back home to South Jersey. That’s why we support Bill in his bid for Congress; we know he won’t forget where he came from.”

Democratic Club member Bill Woods said he trusts Hughes.

“He is honest and straightforward. From his time as a federal prosecutor, we know he plays by the rules and is a man of integrity. He has always strived to do right for his family and his community. There is no better choice for our district, no one else holds my confidence like Bill,” Woods said.

The 2nd Congressional District encompasses all municipalities within Cape May, Cumberland, Salem and Atlantic counties, and parts of Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Ocean counties.
