What N.J.’s anti-Trump wave means to Democrats in 5 House races

May 16, 2018

WASHINGTON — Democratic chances just improved to win four Republican-held House seats in New Jersey and retain one of their own, according to one of the Washington-based publications that track congressional races.

In its latest rankings, Inside Elections for the first time gave an edge to the Democrats in two open seat races now held by Republicans: the 2nd District being vacated by Rep. Frank LoBiondo and the 11th District, where Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen is retiring.

The publication downgraded the re-election chances of Reps. Tom MacArthur, R-3rd Dist., and Leonard Lance, R-7th Dist., and made freshman Democratic Rep. Josh Gottheimer’s a stronger bet to win a second term.
