Elections 2016: Congressional District 10
New Jersey’s 10th Congressional District, which covers most of Newark, parts of Jersey City and Bayonne and several other Essex and Union county communities, has the greatest Democratic majority in the state. Democrat Rep. Donald Payne, Jr. succeeded his father, who died in 2012. The Republican nominee is David Pinckney, a frequent candidate from Irvington. Two independents are also running: Aaron Walter Fraser of Jersey City and Joanne Miller of Newark. This is the only district in the state in which a party has a majority of registered voters, with just over half of voters declared as Democrats.
