The most expensive legislative race in New Jersey this month is not the battle in our First Legislative District featuring Jeff Van Drew and Dave DeWeese. It’s one county north of here. New election reports show the legislative race in the Second District featuring Senator Jim Whelan and challenger Vince Polistina is the most expensive legislative race in the state. Candidates have already spent over $3.2 million in that election. The second costliest election is in North Jersey, in Bergen County.
