BELLEVILLE - While some of the major news networks have already called the race for Sen. Bob Menendez, Chapin Fay, campaign manager for Republican U.S. Senate candidate Joe Kyrillos, encouraged the noticably less enthused crowd at the election night party to stick around and enjoy the music, saying that only 10 percent of the votes had come in.
"We're still very early in the night," he said. He said while Kyrillos lost in Essex and Camden counties, and there was a slippage in Gloucester County, Fay pointed out he was up in Hunterdon and Cape May counties.
No results have come in from Ocean or Bergen counties, but Fay said he will provide an update within a half hour.
The downcast crowd at Nanina's in the Park cheered a little when Fox News declared that Republicans will retain majority control of the U.S. House of Representatives.
On Wednesday, U.S. Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) will officially kick-off his re-election campaign with a three-event tour across the state.Read More >

"Governor Christie ripped President Obama this summer for failing to carve out some time during a Texas fundraising swing to visit the Mexican border, where the unprecedented flood of immigrant children from Central America had reached a crisis point. ...Yet Christie is not squeezing in a tour of the troubled border during his own three-day trade and diplomatic mission to Mexico, which is set to begin on Wednesday. The governor is planning a series of meetings with Mexican officials, including President Enrique Peña Nieto and the finance and energy ministers." - columnist Charles Stile- The Bergen Record
