Democrat Gottheimer wins reelection in New Jersey

Greg Nash

Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J.) is projected to win reelection, clinching a third term in Congress representing parts of northern and western New Jersey.

Gottheimer is projected to have defeated Republican challenger Frank Pallotta, a mortgage finance executive, to retain his seat in a district that had long been a GOP stronghold.

Gottheimer was elected to the House in 2016 and became the first Democrat to represent New Jersey’s 5th District since 1933. A former Microsoft executive, Gottheimer co-chairs the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus and is a leading moderate on the House Financial Services Committee.
