    on a well- deserved victory after a classy and positive campaign,on your record. Am devastated, however that it appears we only have two congressmen left of twelve, for our state! We have to figure out how to do better!( or, like many, give up and move!)

    You spoke too soon, poster # 1. Andy Kim, a Democrat, is now ahead in the vote tally in the the 3rd District. If Kim wins, Chris Smith will be the only Republican in the NJ Congressional delegation.

    He’s still the Dean of the NJ congressional delegation — and thank God we have him Congrats … “Mr. Smith Goes Back t0 Washington.”

    To prepare now.

    With the rest of NJ blue (or almost blue depending on the final CD 3 outcome) the Democrats and the money are going to be coming hard at CD 4 in 2 years.

    Mark my words.

    win by throwing tons more money at his current district, just wait, til the next census and re- districting: Dems are historically better at drawing favorable districts for themselves: and, most of the time, tie- breakers and judges wind up upholding new districts that make it even harder for Republicans.
