Schmid will be the Democrat who challenges longtime Republican incumbent Rep. Chris Smith as he seeks to hold onto his seat this November.
MIDDLETOWN, NJ — Stephanie Schmid has won the Democratic primary in New Jersey’s Congressional District 4, according to The Associated Press.
The Associated Press declared Schmid the winner Thursday with about 40 percent of the votes in: She received 20,000 votes (70 percent of the total), followed by rival Christine Conforti (6,600 votes, or 23 percent) and last, David Applefield with 1,700 votes (six percent of the total).
Schmid will be the Democratic nominee who challenges longtime Republican incumbent Rep. Chris Smith. In a unique twist, Schmid actually once interned for Congressman Smith as a teenager, so she’s now trying to unseat her former boss.
