The U.S. Senate race on top of the ballot between Senator Cory Booker and GOP nominee Jeff Bell has generated no excitement and little media attention.
The congressional races in CD 4 and CD 6 are not competitive.

Democratic Freeholder Candidates recount their arrests, Threaten Blogger
By Art Gallagher
Monmouth County Democratic Freeholder Candidate Lawrence W. Luttrell continued his assault on Freeholder Director Lillian Burry’s character tonight at a candidates forum in Middletown.
“There have been 10 indictments since Lillian Burry has been in office,” Luttrell declared at a League of Women Voters moderated debate sponsored by the Lincroft Village Green Association at the Lincroft Elementary School. “Monmouth County has a corruption problem, ” he said.
Luttrell rattled off 10 names, starting with former Freeholder Harry Larrison and six other Operation Bid Rig defendants who were arrested in February of 2005.
“Those people were gone before I got there,” Burry angrily shot back at Luttrell.
Burry was first elected to the Freeholder Board in November of 2005, nine months after the Operation Bid Rig arrests.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2014 Elections, Monmouth County, Monmouth Democrats | Tags: Freeeholder Director Lillian Burry, Freeholder Gary Rich, Giuseppe "Joe" Grillo, Grillo arrest record, Larry Luttrell, Lawrence Luttrell, Lincroft Village Green Association, Lunging Larry Luttrell, Lying Larry Luttrell, Monmouth Democrats, Stephany Murray, Tony Fiore | 66 Comments »
