3rd Congressional District, Toms River

VIDEO: MacArthur Radio Appearance Draws Protests in Toms River

TOMS RIVER – Protesters are gathering in front of Townsquare Media’s studios in anticipation of Congressman Tom MacArthur’s scheduled 7:00 PM radio appearance on WOBM’s “Ask the Congressman” program Thursday night.

In addition to protesters demonstrating their opposition to the policy agenda of President Donald Trump, a handful of those present held signs in support of the 3rd district Republican congressman.

Rep. MacArthur

Earlier this week, MacArthur made headlines for surprising a Democratic meeting in Burlington County as he spoke with those on the other side. While many of the protestors have centered their criticism on Trump, notably, during the 2016 campaign, MacArthur refused to display any Trump signs on his Bayville campaign headquarters.

Photos and videos of the protest were posted on social media by Townsquare-owned radio stations.
