At this moment (9:14PM), the Republicans lead in all three battleground districts. However, we only have Ocean County (NJ3) and Monmouth County (NJ6/NJ12) results plus a bit from Hunterdon (NJ12). These are Republican strongholds and the results are consistent with the Monmouth University pre-election polls: Runyan eads 59-37 in the Ocean County votes and led 54-37 in the poll. Runyan looks likely to win, but it’s too soon to call. DeStefano only got 2% in Ocean County so he’s not draining Runyan’s support. I’m nervous about Holt but he was expected to do badly in Monmouth.
Update: Holt (NJ12) and Pallone (NJ6) both win. Right now they are 51%-48% and 55%-44% respectively but not all districts are in.
