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.

"Gov. Chris Christie says he won’t campaign for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York because the cause is hopeless: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ahead by more than 30 points. But he will campaign in New Hampshire, over and over, where the Republican is also trailing by more than 30 points. What’s the reason? It may be that New Hampshire holds the nation’s first presidential primary. It may be that he doesn’t want to mess with Cuomo, who knows where the skeletons are buried at the Port Authority. But one thing is certain: Gov. Straight Talk is spinning again. And it seems to be habit-forming." - columnist Tom Moran- Star-Ledger
