5 things to watch in every state: New Jersey

There’s really only one election I’m interested in watching.  That is the election for New Jersey’s 5th Congressional District. Republican incumbent Scott Garrett won re-election in 2012 with 55% of the vote defeating his Democratic challenger by 37,000 votes.  In 2014, Garrett ran again for re-election.  He defeated Democratic challenger Roy Cho by about 23,000 votes winning 55% of the vote.  Sabato Crystal Ball has this race has a toss up.  I’m interested in seeing if Trump actually makes inroads into some of these bluer states that could potentially make what seemed like vulnerable Republicans feel safe.
