NJ candidates may play a role in this expected new majority with strong challenger campaigns being waged across the state.

Pascrell, unlike all the other Democrats in NJ, refuses to debate Billy. If you've heard Billy speak, you can understand his fear.

Frank Pallotta is taking on incumbent Josh Gottheimer in NJ's 5th District, which covers parts of Bergen, Passaic, Warren, and Sussex counties.
