The races for Congress in Monmouth County are snooze fests. Our incumbent congressmen, Chris Smith and Frank Pallone are heavily favored to be reelected by wide margins.
But just south of us in Ocean and Burlington Counties, the CD-3 race between freshman Democrat Congressman Andy Kim and Republican businessman David Richter is one of the most competitive and closely watch races in the nation. The partisan balance of power in the House of Representative could depend on the outcome of that election.
New Jersey Globe’s David Wildstein is hosting and moderating a debate between Kim and Richter on Sunday, October 4 at 9 p.m. Livestream coverage will be available at NJGlobe.com, facebook, youtube and twitter.
Following the debate, MMM’s Art Gallagher will join Wildstein, Democrat strategist Steve Ayscue , Assemblywoman Carol Murphy (D-Burlington) and Assemblyman Ryan Peters (R-Burlington) for an hour of post-debate analysis.
