Ratings agency moves CD3 to tossup

Cook Political Report ratings change follows tight poll

By Nikita Biryukov, August 15 2018 11:10 am

Following a poll that showed Rep. Tom MacArthur in a neck-and-neck race with former Obama staffer Andy Kim, the Cook Political Report has changed its rating for the third district from leaning Republican to a tossup.

On Tuesday, Monmouth University released a poll that showed MacArthur leading Kim by just one point, 41% to 40%, with 15% of voters undecided.

Following the ratings change, MacArthur’s seat joins almost all the other Republican-held seats in the state in facing usurpation by Democrats.

So far, it seems only Rep. Chris Smith’s seat remains relatively safe.
