2012 Primary Election Results in Monmouth County

State Sen. Kyrillos (R-Monmouth) easily won the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate over three challengers, and will face incumbent Democrat U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez in the fall.

Primary elections were held throughout New Jersey Tuesday, to determine who will represent their party in the general election in November.

State Sen. Kyrillos (R-Monmouth) easily won the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate over three challengers, and will face incumbent Democrat U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez in the fall. He celebrated at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel Tuesday night. "In Washington, we can stay the course or we can change the course, he said in his remarks. "We must ensure for the people of America opportunities for greatness."

Menendez released a statement, saying, “I congratulate State Senator Joe Kyrillos on winning his primary race and look forward to a campaign that will focus on and discuss the differences between us in an honorable way.”

In the contested race for US Representative-6th District, Anna Little appeared to be the frontrunner, with 100 percent of districts reporting. The former Monmouth Republican Freeholder Anna Little had 3,424 votes, versus Ernesto Cullari, of the county Republican organization, with about 2,394.

The 4th District pit Terrance McGowan against Christopher Smith. Smith came out on top with 12,037 vots, while McGowan had 2,683.

State Sen. Kyrillos abandoned his District 13 constituents by not even making a comment to support Union Beach in its fight to prevent a 38-story noisy industrial wind turbine just a little over 1,000 feet from a lot of homes. Hazlet, Matawan, Holmdel, Keyport and Monmouth County also passed resolutions opposing the turbine. But still Kyrillos refused to weigh in, even after he granted a meeting to a few locals looking for his help. Recently, he was the only Republican sponsor on a bill that would have allowed wind turbines up to 500' tall on preserved farm land in two southern NJ counties. Kyrillos is not what he claims. He's a wheeling-and-dealing back door politician with no loyalty to the people he's supposed to represent. I'm a Republican, and will gladly vote for Menendez unless there’s a write-in candidate I support.
