2 Key GOP Representatives to Depart from Their Districts in 2018

Posted By RJ Alpers, Wednesday, November 8, 2017

Yesterday afternoon, it was announced that Representative Frank LoBiondo(R-NJ-02), a senior Republican from New  Jersey will be retiring from Congress in 2018 and not seeking reelection. This is of political significance to IMA and its membership because Rep. LoBiondo, a moderate Republican, has long been a supporter of the mining and industrial minerals industry. Furthermore, Rep. LoBiondo has strong labor ties and has several members’ mines within his district. With his decision to retire, political experts predict that this will open a battleground for the second district in southern New Jersey that LoBiondo has held since 1994.

In other political news, Representative Martha McSally (R-AZ-02) announced that she will be running for the Arizona Senate seat to be left vacant after Senator Jeff Flake’s retirement next year. Rep. McSally’s second district also contains members’ mines. We encourage all membership to stay up to date on local political developments as they may impact the political environment in your district. IMA will continue to provide updates to any political developments concerning our members.
