Republicans have conceded the senatorial seat to incumbent Robert Menendez.
As the ballots pour in from Sandy-ravaged New Jersey, Robert Menendez has emerged victorious in reclaiming his U.S. Senate seat against Republican challenger Joe Kyrillos. With just over half of polling districts reporting, state Republicans have conceded victory to Menendez. The U.S. senator leads 58 percent to 40 percent as of 10:30 p.m., according to CBS News. "Senator Joe Kyrillos ran a great campaign against very tough circumstances and despite the loss, his family, campaign team, and supporters should be very proud of their efforts," New Jersey Republican Chairman Sam Raia said in a statement late Tuesday night. "Joe represents the very best of New Jersey and has fought for his constituents faithfully from the day he took office and …

Some 89 percent of Democrats gave Obama the debate win, while Republicans declared Romney the winner by the same margin.

Romney's executive capabilities were on full display,” one Republican insider said. “This will energize the voters and clearly demonstrated that he will return America to being viewed as being professionally run as a business and ALL Americans are its clients.” Democrats were also impressed with …

However, over 80 percent believe President Obama will be declared the "consensus winner" by media outlets.
New Jersey political insiders declared their party’s candidate the winner of the second presidential debate Tuesday night.

According to a Patch flash poll sent to elected officials and political party insiders, 24 out of 27 Democrats responding believed Obama was the victor, while 20 out of 24 Republicans declared Romney the winner. “I think Romney had a better understanding and explanation of how to create jobs and grow the economy. He looked much more presidential,” one Republican said. The results of Patch’s second presidential debate poll of New Jersey insiders contrast with those from last week’s head-to-head, in …

Presidential debate a 'disaster' for Obama, one Democrat says as both parties agree GOP challenger wins Round 1.
Thursday, October 4, 2012
New Jersey political insiders agreed: Mitt Romney won Round 1 against President Barack Obama. According to a Patch flash poll immediately following Wednesday night's presidential debate in Denver, Colo., 63 percent of both Democratic and Republican respondents believed Romney was victorious. "This is a game-changer, especially in a close race," one Democratic respondent said. "Obama was definitely off his game." All 29 Republican respondents believed Romney won by either a wide or slim margin, while 11 of the 27 Democratic respondents agreed. "Mr. Romney taking the President to task regarding the misrepresentation of his tax plan," one Republican insider said of the moment that would stand out most among New Jersey conservatives. "Mr. …

Focus of New Jersey politicians shifts immediately to Christie’s 2013 reelection campaign.
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s decision to choose Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate limits Christie’s options for a future presidential run and immediately shifts the focus in New Jersey to Christie’s 2013 gubernatorial reelection campaign. Privately, Republican Party leaders in New Jersey were relieved by Ryan’s selection, knowing that Christie’s consistently high poll ratings make him a solid favorite for reelection, while any other GOP candidate would automatically start out as a 10-point underdog. With Democrats firmly in control of both houses of the Legislature, Democratic recapture of the governorship would make the GOP in New Jersey virtually irrelevant. Meanwhile, Democrats weighing a race for …
