New Jersey candidates to face off in Tuesday's election

Posted: Updated:
Tuesday is Election Day, and while no national races are being decided, one of New Jersey's races is getting national attention.

Governor Chris Christie still holds a rather comfortable lead over Democratic State Senator Barbara Buono.

The candidates and their running mates, Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno and Democrat Milly Silva have been criss-crossing the state over the last several days, trying to get those last minute votes.

Christie is getting national attention because many believe that Christie is already eyeing another race... The race for president in 2016.

In the first legislative district, current State Senator Jeff Van Drew is facing a challenge from Republican Susan Adellizzi-Schmidt.

The current assembly seats are also up for grabs, held by Van Drew's running mates, fellow Democrats, also incumbents, Nelson Albano and Bob Andrzejczak.

Their Republican challengers are also freeholders, Sam Fiocchi and Kristine Gabor.

In the second legislative district Atlantic County Sheriff Frank Balles is going up against incumbent Democratic State Senator Jim Whelan.

Balles's Republican running mates, are the incumbents, Assemblymen Chris Brown and John Amodeo.

They are facing a challenge from Democrats Nick Russo and Vincent Mazzeo.

In the ninth legislative district, which covers a small portion of Atlantic County, incumbent Republican State Senator Christopher Connors is facing Democrat Anthony Mazzella.

Connors' running mates, assembly incumbents Brian Rumpf and Dianne Gove are running against Peter Ferwerda III and Christopher McManus.
