Frelinghuysen Wins 10th Term in Congress

Republican Rodney Frelinghuysen defeated former Roseland mayor, Democrat John Arvanites.

Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen will return to Congress for his 10th term.

Frelinghuysen, of the 11th Congressional District, beat Democrat John Arvanites, the former mayor of Roseland. A member of Congress since 1995, Frelinghuysen is a member of a family that has been involved in New Jersey politics since the 18th Century and had previously served on the New Jersey General Assembly from 1984 to 1995.

Frelinghuysen, of Harding Township, handily beat Arvanites in Morris County with 91,421 vote (64 percent) to his opponent's 50,052 (35 percent).

His lead was not quite so solid in Passaic and Essex counties, which Frelinghuysen now represents since redistricting took place in the state.

In a press release issued shortly after his victory was called, Frelinghuysen thanked voters for sending him back to Washington.

“My victory tonight, like all who stood for election today, is tempered by the knowledge that so many New Jerseyans are without electricity, heat and basic necessities," he said in the press release. "Our hearts go out to those who are in need and to so many who were able to vote today and keep their community and America strong, despite incredible obstacles.

“Our focus in Congress continues to be jobs and the economy, getting people back to work, government out of their way, lowering taxes, and creating a climate where small businesses can survive and flourish. That effort needs to be bipartisan," he said.

Typical of woman hating, middle class/poor beat down congressional rep. Frelinghysen voted AGAINST everything that would empower women, healthcare, education, infrastructure expansion, AND jobs creation. Just take a look at his voting record, it's easily accessible on line. But the clown was voted in for another term. Thank God for the electoral college for the president. Stupid is as stupid does. Good work District 11. NOT!!!!!

And your post,Selene is an example of stupid. Rep.Frelinghsen has voted for many issues that effect women and empower women. Get your facts straight. We are in a age of huge deficits. We need to cut back on some things. I am sorry if women have to pay for their own birth control pills,products--many of us did in the past. We are a generation of women who did not whine and complain such as you. We work hard. Take some reponsibility. Vote with your head. Iam a registered republican but have voted many times for a democrat. You need to vote for the person not the party. You need to stop blamming George Bush. 911 changed everything. Thank God that Obama was not president then--we would be speaking arabic. Obama was wrong for our country 4 yrs ago and I dont think there will be more changes in these 4 critical years. we cannot sustain these deficits. Yes,some social programs need to changed. You receive welfare, you must do some work in your community.
