This?  This should be included in the new formula for the VRA.  This isn't OK.

It's not the greatest ballot but it's also not the reason those candidates lost.  I don't think ANY Dem will have a chance any time soon in the 4h District--it's by far the reddest part of the state.  Hamilton, Deal, Rumson, Freehold, Howell, Wall, Colts Neck, Red Bank, Jackson, Pt. Pleasant...  It stops just short of Trenton on the west and Asbury Park on the east, We may be one of the bluest states but that section is friggin' NUTS.  

The 5th District is better--still leans red but not firmly entrenched like the other.  A moderate Dem just narrowly squeezed in but there's NO way a progressive is going to win up there.

"Research shows that candidates on the County Line average a 35-point advantage. It's a big reason why an incumbent state legislator hasn't lost a primary in New Jersey since 2009. "

Is it though? I mean let's put candidates with no chance of winning in that column and see.

Hi! Member of the NJ "corrupt party machine".

The party line is kind of important to county politics. It's been...interesting....to say the least, to be witness to the Democratic Party doing its thing.
