Timeline of Gary Cobb
In 2014, Cobb ran for the Republican nomination for New Jersey’s 1st congressional district. He was initially recruited to potentially run in New Jersey’s 3rd congressional district instead, which meant if he won, he could succeed another Republican and former Eagle, Jon Runyan, who was not running for re-election to the House. In order to do this, Cobb, a resident of nearby Cherry Hill, located in the 1st District, would have had to move into a municipality in the 3rd District. Cherry Hill had previously been in the 3rd District until the redistricting following the 2010 Census.
However, Cobb eventually decided to run in the 1st District instead, to fill a seat being vacated by Democrat Rob Andrews. Cobb won the Republican nomination and faced Democrat Donald Norcross, at the time a New Jersey State Senator, in the November general election. However, Norcross (D) (57.4%, 93,315 votes) ended up defeating Cobb (R) (39.4%, 64,073 votes).
Cobb is now the principal operator of a Philadelphia Eagles news and rumors website known as GCobb.com. The site claims that 100,000 fans visit and read from the website monthly.
