    Roll Call ^ | June 29, 2012 | By Justin Worland
    New Jersey Rep. Jon Runyan is currently favored to win his first re-election race this fall in a district that was improved for the Republican by redistricting. But the former professional football player faces a unique political circumstance in the 3rd district contest against former town Councilwoman and PTA President Shelley Adler (D). The memory of Adlers late husband, Rep. John Adler (D), who lost a close race to Runyan in 2010, has the potential to disrupt the dynamics of the race. New Jersey political observers said Runyan maintains the edge. But, they added, Adler has a path to victory,...

This week, the DCCC spent $1.5 million on ads for Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.), after spending nothing in the previous week, and dropped $653,865 to protect another vulnerable incumbent, Rep. John Adler (D-N.J.), against his challenge from former NFL offensive tackle Jon Runyan. Read more:

    In a case that drew attention from the Gun Owners Action League and the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, the Supreme Judicial Court yesterday upheld a state law requiring trigger locks on guns kept in peoples homes. In what was seen by some as a victory for law enforcement and advocates of gun control, the states highest court ruled that the Second Amendment does not restrict the right of Massachusetts to impose its own rules on gun ownership. We conclude that the legal obligation safely to secure firearms in [state law] is not unconstitutional, Justice Ralph Gants wrote for...

    PHILADELPHIA -- They first met eight years ago, when the world was young and their knees and shoulders didn't ache nearly so much. On Sunday, Giants left defensive end Michael Strahan and Eagles right offensive tackle Jon Runyan meet for the 13th time. It is a classic, cosmic collision featuring an extremely irresistible force and a thoroughly immovable object. The Giants lead the NFC East with a surprising 8-4 record, while Philadelphia, the defending NFC champion, is struggling at 5-7 and is coming off a disturbing 42-0 home loss to the Seahawks. For these two proud men, however, records don't...
