2014 Voter Guide: District 6

NJ Spotlight | May 27, 2014 | Elections 2014

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 Anthony Wilkinson had a primary challenger. A third candidate on the general election ballot is Dorit Goikhman, a Libertarian.

Pallone’s long tenure and the Democratic voter plurality — 35.1 percent of registered voters are Democrats, compared with 13.2 percent Republicans — make this a safe blue district.
