New Jersey Senator Michael Testa, R-1 is the Cumberland County Republican Chairman and he’s the New Jersey state Co-Chairman for President Donald Trump’s campaign.

These numbers when paired with Atlantic County will largely decide whether United States Congressman Jeff Van Drew or challenger Amy Kennedy will win the 2nd Congressional District.

Also, the Craig Callaway factor is not reflected in the Atlantic County numbers that we reported yesterday.

Callaway will be a major factor in the following races:

United States House of Representative’s District 2

Atlantic County Surrogate

Atlantic County Sheriff

Atlantic County Freeholder (2 seats)

Atlantic County Freeholder - District 3

Atlantic City Board of Education

Pleasantville Board of Education
