Former Eagle Jon Runyan Elected To US House Of Representatives

New, comments

This summer, we sent one Eagle to the nation's capital and so far that's worked out pretty good for us. Tonight, New Jersey's 3rd congressional district has sent another Eagle to DC when they elected Jon Runyan to the US House Of Representatives. Runyan unseated incumbent John Adler in a long and expensive campaign that was very tight right to the end.

Now Runyan gets to find out what's the dirtier and rougher environment, the trenches of an NFL game or the halls of congress. At this point, that's probably too close to call.

So congratulations to Runyan and his four donkeys. Now he's got to go to Washington and govern. For his sake and certainly for our own, hopefully he does well for his district.
