AP calls 10th for Payne

The Associated Press has called the 10th District contest in favor of U.S. Rep. Donald Payne.

Payne will take over the seat once held by his father, who died earlier this year.

"He’s obviously working very, very hard at it. I mean he’s traveling all over the country as chairman of the [Republican Governors Association] and I think at this point he has as good a chance or better than anybody else. His name is household word all across the country, and I think he would make a great president."
