Democrats appear to be winning in Monmouth County for the first time since 2008 after the first round of paper ballots were reported.
However, there are 150,000-200,000 ballots yet to be counted.
With 189, 594 votes reported on Tuesday night, Joe Biden is leading for President, Cory Booker is leading for U.S. Senate and Democrats Michael Penna and Moira Nelson are narrowly leading Republicans Lillian Burry and Ross Licitra for two Freeholder (soon to be known as County Commissioners) seats.

The murder of “Liberty and Justice for All” is happening at this very moment in the last country left on earth where people run to find freedom. Three more nails were driven into the coffin of our 1st Amendment Rights in the last few weeks. Many unprecedented attacks have occurred over the past decade but in recent weeks some of the most blatant and heinous acts against our Constitution and our Free Society, have been thrust upon us. Unfortunately, as “sheep to the slaughter”, too many Americans are watching with No reaction.
UPDATE 10/14/20: The NJ Division of Elections has corrected the issue and Maryanne is no longer getting calls.
Maryanne, an 83 year old widow who lives in Freehold, is getting about 45 phone calls a day on her home phone from Monmouth County voters calling to see if their ballots have been received by the Board of Elections.
I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!
