Democrats Retain Full Control of County Freeholder Board
Jeffrey Nash, Ian Leonard and Michelle Gentek easily defeat the Republicans running for freeholder.
The Democratic slate for Camden County freeholder easily defeated their Republican challengers Tuesday, keeping the county's governing body all Democratic.
Incumbents Jeffrey Nash (116,969 votes) and Ian Leonard (110,586) joined newcomer and current Gloucester Township Councilwoman Michelle Gentek (113,045) in declaring victory.
Republicans received roughly half of those votes in this blue-colored county. The vote totals are: Jim Pearce (58,697), Ian Gill (53,286) and Eugene Lawrence (52,211).
All vote totals are unofficial until certified officials. Because of Hurricane Sandy's effects on the state, all mail-in ballots must be accepted until Friday at 8 p.m., although the wide margins of votes make it highly unlikely that the freeholder race's outcome will change.
