The event will take place in the main lecture hall at the library beginning at 7 p.m., and the club is expected to publicly endorse Hughes at the event.
Hughes is one of two Democrats set to challenge Frank LoBiondo in this year’s Congressional election. Hughes’ father, Bill Hughes Sr., served in Congress 1974 to 1995. He lost his seat to LoBiondo, who has remained in the position ever since.
He is a former prosecutor with Cooper Levenson, and resides in Northfield. He announced he would run for the seat in October.
Hughes is running against former White House aide and software engineer Dave Cole in the Democratic Primary.
LoBiondo is running against former Absecon Board of Education member and radio talk show host Mike Assad in the Republican Primary.
The primaries will be held June 3.
The Second Congressional District is made up of all of Atlantic, Cape May, Salem and Cumberland counties, as well as parts of Ocean, Camden, Burlington and Gloucester counties.
