Looking Down-Ballot in New Jersey . . .

Last night on the Hugh Hewitt program, New Jersey Republican party chairman Jay Webber talked with me about the outlook beyond his state’s governor’s race. Republicans are leading the generic ballot 45 percent to 43 percent, the first GOP lead in “anyone’s memory.”

He’s feeling more confident about picking up the nine seats Republicans need for a majority in the New Jersey Assembly.

“If you had asked me at the beginning of the year, I would have said probably not, that we would pick up seats but that nine was a tall order. But sitting here in August, it looks much more attainable. Not going to predict it, but it could happen,” Webber said.
