12:39 a.m. (11/6) – NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt, who had a solid night, issued a formal statement claiming momentum for his party: “I am proud of our candidates and the work we have done to build a foundation for the NJGOP. Republicans in New Jersey won’t be shouted into a corner. It was great to be on offense in places like LD-1. We pushed back Phil Murphy’s blue wave and in a state like New Jersey, that gives us momentum going into 2020.”
