Somerset GOP Celebrates Wins, Leads

With some races still too close to call, county Republicans got together at the Somerville Elks Club.

Somerset County Republicans came together Tuesday night at the Somerville Elks Club to celebrate election day and the end of their campaigns.

For some, like District 7 Congressman Leonard Lance (R), the vote margin by the end of the night was large enough for multiple reports to call the election in his favor.

For others, like incumbent Freeholders Patrick Scaglione and Mark Caliguire, as well as District 16 Assemblywoman Donna Simon, their slim leads coupled with provisional and fax or email ballots still to be counted, the victories were still not stamped Tuesday evening.

However, each candidate celebrated what they believed to be victories with each other at the Elks Club.

"We need to work together in a bi-partisan manor to solve our problems,"Lance said Tuesday night. "I will keep the principals of fiscal responsibility in the forefront."
