TUESDAY’S TOP STORIES:
ELECTION 2018-NEW JERSEY
TRENTON — Democratic-leaning New Jersey turned a deeper shade of blue after Tuesday’s election, with Democrats taking at least three House seats from Republican control, and incumbent Sen. Bob Menendez fending off a well-funded GOP challenger. The Democratic pickups mean the party will control at least 10 of the state’s 12 House districts and both Senate seats. Democrats also have a majority in the state Legislature and hold the governorship — both of which were not on the ballot Tuesday. By Mike Catalini. SENT: 665 words, photos.
