New Jersey Republican Mike Halfacre has filed paperwork to prepare for a possible 2010 campaign against Democratic Rep. Rush D. Holt in the state’s 12th District .  

Halfacre is a lawyer and the mayor of Fair Haven , a small borough in Monmouth County that is near the eastern end of a Democratic-leaning district that meanders across the midsection of the state.  

Tom Fitzsimmons, a spokesman for Halfacre, said in an e-mail message to CQ Politics that Halfacre is “considering running” for Congress next year and that “right now he is talking to people and gauging interest in his candidacy.”
