The race to fill the First Congressional District seat left vacant when Rob Andrews resigned in February is down to two.

As of 11 p.m. Tuesday night, it appeared Democrat Donald Norcross and Republican Garry Cobb had each won their respective primaries Tuesday night to set up the Nov. 4 elections, with all of Gloucester County reporting, and large portions of Burlington and Camden counties reporting.

The Associated Press projected Norcross and Cobb as the winners.

Norcross, a State Sen. and brother of Democratic bigwig George Norcross, defeated Logan Mayor Frank Minor and Afghan War veteran Frank Broomell Jr.

Cobb, a former professional football player and Cherry Hill resident, defeated former Collingswood school board member Claire Gustafson, realtor Jerry McManus and Navy veteran Lee Lucas.

Voters will go to the polls on Nov. 4 to determine who fills the unexpired term and who will assume the seat for the next full two-year-term.

Andrews resigned amid an ethics investigation in February to take a position with Dilworth Paxson.

The race for two seats on the Camden County Board of Chosen Freeholders was also narrowed Tuesday night.

County Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli Jr. and Freeholder Scott McCray pulled away from the other five candidates in the Democratic Primary. They each garnered over 42 percent of the vote.

They will face Republicans Theodore “Teddy” Liddell and Kimone Smith, who ran unopposed in the Republican Primary, in November.
