Healey congratulates Kim on NJ-3 victory

By David Wildstein, November 09 2022 6:42 pm

Republican Bob Healey  has conceded his loss in a race to unseat Rep. Andy Kim (D-Mooretown) in New Jersey’s 3rd district

“With enough votes now counted to make the outcome of this election clear, I want to thank all who supported me and worked so hard on behalf of this campaign,” Healey said.  “While this was certainly not the outcome we were hoping for, I am proud of the campaign that we put forward and the incredible team we assembled. “

Kim leads Healey by a 55%-44% margin, with more ballots waiting to be cast.

“This election has shown once again how deeply divided our country has become and the magnitude of the problems we are facing,” stated Healey.  “As we move forward, with what appears to be a new majority in the House, we must find ways to work together toward common goals like reducing inflation and keeping our communities safe.  I congratulate Congressman Andy Kim and stand ready to work with him in that effort.”

The election gives Kim a third term in the House.   He was elected in 2018, unseating two-term Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-Toms River).
