Primary elections set to be held in New Jersey

Voters will be headed to the polls tomorrow as primary elections will be held across the Garden State.

Primaries are being held in 13 congressional races, with 47 candidates running. One of the districts that is attracting attention is the Republican race in the 7th District.

The 7th District includes parts of Hunterdon, Middlesex, Somerset and Union counties. Leonard Lance is a freshman incumbent and is being challenged by three opponents. Bruce Baker and David Larsen are both small business owners. Lon Hosford says he is "shovel ready" for Congress.

All of Lance's challengers have ties to the tea party, which analysts say is not uncommon in the current political environment.
