A lot of speculation is pointing to Scott Garrett (Republican-5th District) and Steve Rothman (Democrat-9th District) being thrown into one competitive district by the bi-partisan committee which is supposed to redraw the lines. New Jersey is dropping from 13 to 12 districts. Currently the 13th district is the racially gerrymandered “Hispanic District,” which means that district will now be called either the 5th or 9th district (if the most likely scenario does indeed play out).
