Trenton- Tuesday was Election Day. Assemblyman John Wisniewski, Chairman of the New Jersey Democratic State Committee, released the following statement regarding the results:
“Throughout New Jersey, Democratic staff, volunteers, and voters made a difference. I am so proud that New Jersey helped re-elect President Barack Obama. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of many, we will send Senator Bob Menendez back to the United States Senate to fight for us for six more years. The voters sent Congressmen Rob Andrews, Frank Pallone, Albio Sires, Bill Pascrell, and Rush Holt back to the United States House of Representatives, where they will be joined by their newest colleague, Congressman Donald Payne, Jr. New Jersey can be proud to send such a strong group of leaders to Washington to fight for the middle class and continue to grow our economy.
In New Jersey’s special legislative elections, I am pleased that I will continue to serve alongside Gabriela Mosquera in the New Jersey General Assembly. With the unusual circumstances of this election due to Hurricane Sandy, we know that a number of provisional ballots are still being counted in the 16th Legislative District. Marie Corfield ran a strong campaign and she has a good opportunity to be elected Assemblywoman once all the votes are tallied.
In county elections, New Jersey Democrats had several key victories. Democrats in Bergen County took majority control over the Board of Freeholders. In Passaic County, every Freeholder is now a Democrat. In Burlington and Cumberland Counties, Democrats won two seats each on the Board of Freeholders. In Atlantic County, we won one Freeholder seat. Throughout local elections around the state, I am extremely proud of the number of candidates who won.
Tuesday night was a win for New Jersey Democrats and our state. Today, tomorrow, and in the coming weeks, Democrats will get back to the work of rebuilding our state and moving us forward.”

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop- PolitickerNJ.com
