Pallone wins

By Nikita Biryukov, November 06 2018 8:15 pm

Rep. Frank Pallone won an 11th term in Congress with 121,502 votes.

The congressman will beat out Republican Rich Pezzullo, who scored 72,337 votes.

Pezullo conceded the race, marking a ninth campaign loss for the candidate.

I congratulate the Congressman on his victory, and I urge him to work in the best interests of the people of New Jersey,” Pezzullo said. “I want to thank everyone who worked for me: whether you knocked doors, made phone calls or donated, I am so deeply humbled that you put your time, money and heart on the line to send me to Congress.”

Pallone was first elected to the House in 1988. Before that, he served in the State Senate for four years.
