Political rematch heats up in NJ's 6th District

TRENTON - One of the year's most heated battles for New Jersey Congress is a rematch between two major party rivals from two years ago.

Rep. Frank Pallone is defending his seat against Republican Anna Little in the state's 6th District, which includes parts of Middlesex and Monmouth counties.

Pallone held off the Tea Party-backed challenger in a close race back in 2010.

Known for her passionate volunteers dubbed "Anna's Army", Little has revived her tax-cutting strategy and has made job creation her top priority.

Pallone is also targeting job creation, and says voters will be moved by his strong support for the environment and for President Barack Obama's health care reform plan.

There are four other candidates in the running for the 6th District seat.
