Upcoming 2014 New Jersey Elections

The 2014 New Jersey Elections will take place on November 4. The 2014 elections will cover races for the U.S. Congress for the 2nd and 3rd Congressional District. They are both for the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House.

For the 2nd Congressional District, in an increasingly blue district, the longtime incumbent Frank LoBionto has successfully fought off challengers from the Democratic Party. However, it is estimated that it will be difficult for LoBiondo to retain his seat. For the 3rd Congressional District, Jon Runvan had announced his retirement and in these circumstances the seat is likely to change partisan control.

Heading into the election for the U.S. Senate, the incumbent is Cory Booker, who was elected in a special election in 2013, following Frank Lautenberg's death. The other candidates for the general election are the Republican Jeff Bell, Joe Baratelli, the independent candidate Jeff Boss, Democratic-Republican Eugene Lavergne, the independent Antonios Sabas, and Hank Shroeder for the Economic Growth party.

New Jersey is one of 12 states in which the selection of a party's candidates in an election is strictly limited to registered party members in a closed primary election process. New Jersey is also among the 35 states with no online voter registration. New Jersey has also not implemented an early voting system state-wide as of this election.

It is expected that in the November 4th elections the Republicans across the state of New Jersey will take advantage of Obama’s unpopularity to turn those poll numbers in their favor. The general frustration with the White House is used in the Republicans campaign to attack on the President's administration and his policies. This tactic is particularly pertinent in the Senate race, where Republicans are fighting fiercely to regain control from the Democratic majority. In the state of New Jersey the Republican Jeff Bell is facing off the incumbent Senator Cory Booker.  They are seemingly the most well placed candidates in the race. Even if Jeff Bell is still behind Cory Booker popularity, he is taking advantage of every opportunity to attack the Democrat policies.
