6th Congressional District hopefuls prepare for Election Day

The race between Rep. Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) and Republican challenger Anna Little is being closely watched as Little seems to be gaining support days before

LONG BRANCH - The race between Rep. Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) and Republican challenger Anna Little is being closely watched as Little seems to be gaining support days before the election.

Little, a tea party candidate and the current mayor of Highlands, made a grand entrance yesterday at a rally in Long Branch along with RNC Chairman Michael Steele. She linked Pallone with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, claiming they are both for big government.

Today, Pallone held a news conference in the same spot. Several environmental organizations endorsed the congressman of 22 years, applauding his fight for ocean testing and stance against offshore drilling. If re-elected, Pallone says job creation would also be his focus.

The 6th Congressional District covers most of Monmouth County, parts of Middlesex County, Franklin Township in Somerset County and Plainfield in Union County.
