Union Township is heavily Democratic, but it is split between the 7th and 10th Congressional Districts.
NJ-07 is a key House battleground this year, where incumbent Leonard Lance, a Republican and frequent Trump critic, is fighting to hold off former Obama Administration official Tom Malinowksi.
Union is also a short 30 minute hop away from President Trump’s Bedminster golf course where he regularly spends summer weekends and some holidays.
