Chris Smith wins landslide victory in his new congressional district

Toms River- Congressman Chris Smith (R-Manchester) scored another landslide victory last night defeating his closest opponent with a huge 21 percent margin (58%–37%).

“I am honored to once again receive the resounding support from Republican voters throughout the 4th Congressional District,” Smith said. “The extremely positive reception in both new and old portions of the district is overwhelming and encouraging.”

Smith, who was endorsed by every NJ State legislator and county elected official in his congressional district, as well as multiple mayors and council men and women, praised their joint teamwork and credited the day-to-day work of the Republican rank and file throughout both Monmouth and Ocean counties. He attributed the higher than average turnout and wide margin of victory in his race to their tireless, consistent work.

“I am grateful for the support and hard work of the party leaders and rank and file Republican volunteers who manned the phones, went door-to-door, and helped get the mail out to the voters,” Smith said. “Together we made the case about fighting the horrific Biden social agenda that is causing skyrocketing inflation, undercutting parental influence in our schools, and implementing an open border policy that threatens our individual safety and national security,” Smith said. “Our message was strong, honest and it won the day,” he said.

“In Washington we need just 6 seats to take back the House from Nancy Pelosi and put the brakes on the Biden debacles here at home and abroad,” Smith said. “I take nothing for granted and will be running flat out for reelection in the fall. And I will be working overtime to help us send more Republicans from NJ to Washington in the new Congress.

“I look forward to continuing my work on the multiple legislative issues that have made a tremendous impact in the lives of the people of the Fourth district and our state” said Smith who ranks first amongst the entire House of Representatives in successfully turning bills into laws.

“I am grateful for the insights I have gained and the partnerships I have made with the knowledgeable and dedicated average folks across New Jersey. Working with them to advance better policies that ultimately assist others, such as veterans, families fighting Lyme disease and those combatting autism and Alzheimer’s, has been a most rewarding part of the job.”

The Fourth District was redrawn in this past December’s redistricting cycle, shedding parts of Monmouth and all of Mercer County, which included his former hometown of Hamilton, and adding 11 new towns in Ocean County, including Toms River and Brick.
