Experts from both political parties do not expect the balance of political power to shift in Trenton this evening since democrats hold big leads over republicans in both the Assembly and Senate. Democrats are saying this evening that Governor Chris Christie, a republican, has set expectations low throughout the state for the GOP, so any gains will seem significant. In the Assembly, democrats hold a 47-33 majority edge; in the Senate, the democrats lead the republicans 26-14. It is possible the 2nd District in Atlantic County may flip its Senate seat to the republicans. In our 1st District, it would be seen as an upset if republican Dave DeWeese can unseat democratic State Senator Jeff Van Drew. Democrats say Van Drew held a big edge in polling less than a week ago; republicans say Van Drew’s support has significantly eroded over the past few weeks.
