Democratic registration lead roughly level in CD3

By Nikita Biryukov, March 03 2020 12:45 pm

Democrats’ voter registration advantage remained roughly level in the third congressional district through February.

As of now, the district has 10,882 more Democrats than Republicans, according to statistics released by the secretary of state.

Last month, they led by 10,842 votes.

Democratic registration edged up by 626 last month, while 586 new Republicans were added to the rolls.

The figures represent a narrowing in the Democratic registration advantage since Election Day 2018, when the district had 12,178 more Democrats than Republicans.

The 3rd had 8,863 more Democrats than Republicans after the new lines were drawn in 2012.

Rep. Andy Kim will fight to win a second term in November there.

Former Burlington County Freeholder Kate Gibbs and former Hill International CEO David Richter are vying for the Republican nod to take on Kim.
