Governor Christie campaigned passionately yesterday in Bergen County’s LD38. He’s looking to bring more taxpayer-friendly folks to Trenton.
The NJGOP’s top pol was also realistic on the stump. He said a Republican takeover could only result from “a tsunami” since the new legislative map was crafted “to preserve significant Democratic majorities” in the State House. He’s not wrong. Few experts give Republicans more than an outside chance of capturing either chamber on November 8th.
But hope still remains while the company remains true, Save Jerseyans! At least two of the seats below are “toss-ups,” meaning they could easily go either way depending on turnout. The rest could go Republican IF the “wave” is large enough. Improbable? Yes. Still possible given the ongoing volatility of the electorate. Keep in mind that a switch of just two seats would change the state senate’s composition to 21 Dems and 19 Repubs… a razor thin margin that may make the difference on some key future votes.
