Embracing the Base, Conservative Testa Wins Senate Seat for New Jersey Republicans

Michael Testa has come out victorious in his campaign to flip New Jersey’s first legislative district to the Republican Party.  Testa and his running mates Erik  Simonsen and Antwan McClellan were the highest vote recipients in the state’s hotly contested race.

In blue Jersey, where wins are hard for Republicans at the state level these days, Testa embraced the conservative voting base often abandoned by New Jersey politicians seeking to gain support from both sides of the fence.

The victory was a step in the right direction for Republicans now gearing up for the 2020 re-election of Donald Trump and a battle against U.S. Senator Cory Booker for control of that seat in Congress.
