New Jersey

New Jersey is a critical battleground for control of the House of Representatives. Democrats could pick up as many as four of the five Republican-held seats in the state. Two of the most vulnerable GOP districts are the 2nd and the 11th, where the Republicans who represent them are retiring. The 3rd and 7th districts will also be competitive for the GOP. On the Senate side, Democrat Bob Menendez is facing some competition as he seeks a third full term. New Jersey hasn't elected a Republican senator since 1972, but Menendez's ethical problems -- he was indicted on corruption charges but not convicted -- have made the race more interesting. Businessman Bob Hugin, the Republican nominee, is trying to seize on the charges, but Menendez remains ahead in most polls.
