Elections 2016: Congressional District 6
New Jersey’s 6th Congressional district contains parts of Middlesex and Monmouth counties. Historically a blue area, its representative is Democrat Frank Pallone Jr., who has served in Congress since 1987. Neither Pallone, nor Republican Brent Sonnek-Schmelz had a primary challenger. There are two independents on the ballot: Rajit Malliah of Piscataway, representing the Green Party, and Judith Shamy of New Brunswick, a Libertarian. The Democratic voter plurality has made this a blue district.
