Congressman Frank Pallone is Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. That makes him one of the most powerful Members of Congress.

New Jersey Globe will be host debates in congressional races for districts 3, 5, 7 and 11, Editor David Wildstein announced this morning.
The hour long debates will be live streamed on facebook and youtube on Sunday nights, 9 p.m. The videos will remain on the platforms for voters to view as they choose their representatives in the 117th Congress.

It is very possible that Jersey ballots will not be tabulated before the Electoral College meets on December 14 or when the President is to be inaugurated on January 20.
House races in districts 2,3,5, 7 and 11 could still be undecided when the House of Representatives is scheduled to be sworn in on January 3.
