Voters in New Jersey had the chance to have their voices heard in June 7’s primary election. Despite early reports that Secretary Hillary Clinton had enough Super Delegates to be the presumptive Presidential nominee for the Democratic Party’s, it was the votes cast in New Jersey that put her over the top in the official delegate count. Secretary Clinton defeated Senator Bernie Sanders 63.3% to 36.7%. As expected, Donald Trump was victorious on the Republican side, winning 81% of the vote.
Around the state, all incumbent Congressmen and women retained their party’s support. This included Realtor® Champion, Congressman Leonard Lance, who won all 6 counties in the 7th Congressional District, defeating old foe David Larsen.
