2012 Primary Election Results in Monmouth County

State Sen. Kyrillos (R-Monmouth) easily won the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate over three challengers, and will face incumbent Democrat U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez in the fall.

Primary elections were held throughout New Jersey Tuesday, to determine who will represent their party in the general election in November.

State Sen. Kyrillos (R-Monmouth) easily won the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate over three challengers, and will face incumbent Democrat U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez in the fall. He celebrated at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel Tuesday night. "In Washington, we can stay the course or we can change the course, he said in his remarks. "We must ensure for the people of America opportunities for greatness."

Menendez released a statement, saying, “I congratulate State Senator Joe Kyrillos on winning his primary race and look forward to a campaign that will focus on and discuss the differences between us in an honorable way.”

The 4th District put Howell resident Terrance McGowan against Christopher Smith. Smith came out on top with 12,037 votes, while McGowan had 2,683.

Menendez has been doing a great job representing New Jersey, standing up for our families and protecting our beautiful jersey shore from industry polluters. It would be a shame for NJ to elect a crony like Kyrillos whose only interests lie with the elite, not the working class people of Howell!!
