Democrats Capture Both Seats in New Jersey 1st District

Democratic Assemblyman Bob Andrzejczak and running mate Bruce Land beat the Republican ticket in southern New Jersey's 1st District.

The victory means Democrats gain a new seat in the Assembly and incumbent Republican Assemblyman Sam Fiocchi won't be returning to the statehouse. Fiocchi's running mate, Jim Sauro, also lost his race.

Nearly $3 million was spent this year in the closely watched race, with much of the money coming from a super political action committee supporting Democrats.

Land is a former corrections officer who has never held elected office.
