New Jersey Senate Election

October 17, 2013

By county

And here is the roll call of the Senate-approved budget deal which raises the debt ceiling for the remainder of this year. The two are related, albeit indirectly. Although the postmortems of this race are not yet in, it should be noted that Mr. Lonegan exceeded the expectations of almost every prominent political analyst who ventured a prediction on this race, despite espousing a robustly conservative, anti-statist, pro-American platform. Whether the solons in the Republican Party leadership will derive any lessons from yesterday’s results  remains to be seen.

    So when was Frank Lautenberg’s term up? Does this mean Lonegan might be in a good position to send Mayor Booker back to Newark? Although I will admit in a state like NJ, that make be unlikely, but I don’t mind asking questions like this.

    I think he still needs to run for a full term, although I’m not certain when the election will be held. I’d like to see Lonegan run again, but who knows?
