New Jersey Filing Closes

From Ballot Access News:

Filing has closed in New Jersey. The U.S. Senate November ballot will have five nominees, those of the Democratic, Republican, Libertarian, Democratic-Republican Parties and an independent candidate who ballot slogan is “Economic Growth.” The Democratic-Republican Party is not allowed to use its name on the ballot, and is listed as the “D-R Party.” Its platform is somewhat similar to the Reform Party’s platform.

For the U.S. House races, there are five districts in which the D-R Party has nominees; two Libertarians; one Green; and 17 independents, with a possibility that a lawsuit will increase that number.

There is also a special election in the First Congressional District, with no Republican nominee. In that race, a Democrat is opposed by a nominee of the D-R Party and two independents. Here is a link to the Election Division’s web page, showing the candidates.
