SOMERVILLE NJ - Peter Jacob is challenging Congressman Leonard Lance in the general election for a two-year term in the House of Representatives.  Tomorrow, the Democratic Party nominee will open his campaign office right in the heart of Somerset County, long a Republican stronghold.

The Jacob campaign will hold a grand opening party at the new campaign headquarters on Tuesday, August 2 at 7:00 PM.  Jacob Headquarters will be located at 131 North Gaston Avenue in Somerville.

A first time candidate, Jacob was reared in Union.  He attended Union County College and Kean University before earning a Masters in Social Work from Washington University in St. Louis.

Jacob has positioned himself as the progressive alternative to Republican Leonard Lance.  The general election will take place on November 8, 2016.
