Rob Andrew’s 1st Congressional District in southwestern New Jersey has one of the least changed boundaries resulting from the redistricting. The biggest change results from one very liberal, very white town being added—Cherry Hill. Even though it is new to the district, Cherry Hill is arguably the most important municipality. When Rob Andrews decides to retire, Cherry Hill will be important in choosing his replacement.

Since the 1st District is almost completely a clump of Democrat towns, that will be equal to winning the general election.
