  •  NJ-10: Eyes again turn to Hudson County. (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    James Allen
    Fifty-seven percent of the new 10th District falls within the boundaries of Essex County, where sources say Payne has a bug leg up on gaining the coveted county line. The other 43% is divided between Union and Hudson counties.

    Sources say Gill has the advantage to get the line in Union, where she enjoys a close relationship with power broker state Sen. Ray Lesniak (D-20).

    That leaves Hudson a critical question mark right now.

    A source close to the process said if Gill could land the lines in both Union and Hudson, she would have a legitimate shot at the nomination. Her Montclair suburban Essex base gives her a base of operations to generate votes in Essex to add to her presumed advantages in the out-lyng counties if she can get their support.

    Then there's the gender factor. Of 170,000 dedicated CD 10 voters, 100,000 are women.
