Christie to the Rescue

New Jersey House races also look surprisingly good. Republican John Runyan will beat John Adler in NJ-3, while Anna Little is narrowly leading Democratic incumbent Frank Pallone in NJ-6 and Scott Sipprelle is leading Democratic incumbent Rush Holt in NJ-12, the Princeton district. These latter areas are suburban districts that voted for Obama in 2008 but swung heavily to Christie in 2009.
