Colleen O'Dea | May 31, 2016 | Elections 2016

2016 district 7
New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District includes Hunterdon County and portions of Somerset, Morris, Union, and Warren. Incumbent Republican Rep. Leonard Lance, who has served District 7 since 2009, again faces a contested primary. This year, he has two opponents: David Larsen of Oldwick for the fourth time and Craig Heard of Succasunna. Democrat Peter Jacob of Union is unopposed. This is a staunchly GOP district, with Republicans outnumbering Democrats.
