Path to Power
A South Jersey native born in 1946, LoBiondo grew up in a farmhouse still owned by the family in Deerfield, N.J., where his father, Frank LoBiondo Sr., once served as mayor and was a founder of the family's trucking business.
LoBiondo attended Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia before joining the family business, where he would come to serve as the operations manager.
During the 110th Congress, LoBiondo followed the party line 80.2 percent of the time, ranking as the sixth most independent member of the GOP. The American Conservative Union gives him a lifetime rating of roughly 67.
LoBiondo is one of two House Republicans to cosponsor the Employee Free Choice Act, which would make it easier for workers to unionize.
LoBiondo is known for playing pick-up basketball games and sharing sausage and his family label wine with close friends and fellow legislators. Among his closest friends is Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.).
Shelley Berkley (D-Nev.), who represents Las Vegas, is LoBiondo's co-chair on the Congressional Gaming Caucus.
