"Runyan praises Obama for offshore drilling decision, but ultimately favors state supremacy" April 5, 2010

Republican candidate for New Jersey District 3 and former NFL star Jon Runyan gives his opinion on President Obama's decision in early 2010 to lift the halt on offshore drilling. He expressed his praise through his opinion that lifting the moratorium will create jobs and wean the United States off foreign oil. He also asserts that it should be each state's decision as to whether or not oil drilling should take place off shores they control. More on this issue can be heard in an audio debate between Runyan and Democratic incumbent John Adler.
