Congressional District 7

NJ Spotlight News | September 17, 2018 | Elections 2018

One of the most talked about districts this year is New Jersey’s 7th, which includes Hunterdon County and portions of Essex, Somerset, Morris, Union, and Warren. It is New Jersey’s only district that re-elected a Republican to Congress while also supporting Democrat Hillary Clinton two years ago.

Four candidates are on the ballot. The incumbent is Republican Rep. Leonard Lance, who has served District 7 since 2009. He faces Democrat Tom Malinowski of Rocky Hill, Green Party candidate Diane Moxley of Garwood, and Gregg Mele of Bridgewater, running under the slogan “Freedom, Responsibility, Action.”
