Gill wins re-election in LD 34

Incumbent state Sen. Nia Gill (D-34) defeated challenger Mark Alexander tonight in the LD 34 Democratic Primary.

Alexander ran a spirited campaign off the line but Gill, running with the support of the Essex County and Passaic County Democratic Party organizations, cruised to victory.

"Since the print publication of this list, Christie, in his capacity as chairman of the Republican Governors Association, helped decisively turn the midterm elections in the Republicans' favor, which makes him a bit more influential than we initially gave him credit for, post-Bridgegate.
