New Jersey Redistricting: District 2 Crystal Ball

English: US Rep. Jo Ann Emerson
Frank LoBiondo via Wikipedia

Frank LoBiondo’s 2nd Congressional District managed to stay mostly the same in most parts of the region except in the northeast. This is where the district added several towns in Republican-heavy Ocean County. These include Tuckerton, Little Egg Harbor, Eagleswood and a part of Stafford…in addition to all of the towns on Long Beach Island. This makes the district more Republican but not overwhelmingly so. Therefore, as long as incumbent LoBiondo does not retire, the Republicans can continue to expect to win this district. If he does retire, look for a major battle, because the district also has some urban areas and declining townships that strongly favor the Democrats. These include: Atlantic City, Pleasantville, Vineland, Bridgeton, Hammonton, Millville, Fairfield, Clayton and Salem.
