Union County’s Democratic candidates will defeat their Republican counterparts, the New Jersey Globe projects.

Incumbent freeholders Angela Garretson and Christopher Hudack ran alongside former principal Lourdes Leon against Republicans Joseph Sarno III, Mark Shore and Paul Verzosa.

Freeholder Angel Estrada did not seek re-election.

County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi is on track to defeat GOP challenger Peter Lijoi, and Democratic Sheriff Peter Corvelli is set to beat Republican Dorothy Burger.

The results are unsurprising. There are 122,261 more Democrats than Republicans in Union County.
