Election results: Barrington and beyond

Democrats swept through virtually every level of the election Tuesday in Barrington, with the party winning the races for borough council, Camden County freeholders, House of Representatives, Senate and President, according to unofficial results from the county.

In the council race, Democrats Shawn Ludwig (1,623 votes) and Patricia Nicholson (1,737) defeated Republicans Samuel Dimateo (1,161) and Wayne M. Schellhas Jr. (1,004), while Democrat Wayne E. Robenolt earned more than 2,000 votes running unopposed for an unexpired seat.

In the nonpartisan Barrington Board of Education vote, incumbent board president Michael Drumm was re-elected with 1,200 votes. Newcomers Sherry Chin-Glaser (1,060) and Mark Correa (disclaimer: I, Mark Correa, am author of; 1,024 votes) also received enough votes to join the board, while James A. Cavallaro Jr. (895) fell short.

The Camden County Board of Chosen Freeholders remained an all-Democratic body Tuesday with Jeffrey L. Nash, Ian K. Leonard and Michelle A. Gentek all receiving more than double the votes of their opponents.

Incumbent U.S. Rep. Rob Andrews, despite being dogged by ethical questions, earned more than 70 percent of the vote, easily defeating Republican challenger Gregory W. Horton.

U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez also received almost 70 percent of the vote in Camden County to retain his seat, while President Barack Obama received 67.75 percent of the votes in Camden County on his way to winning New Jersey.

    Thanks for the report. Barrington results don’t always make the cut for larger media outlets. Let’s hear it for local reporting.
