    of Garrett's district, Bergen county. In 2006, when Garrett came the closest he ever did to losing, his opponent won about 55 percent of Bergen county but got blown out further west in Sussex and Warren counties.

    Also as a general rule Bergen county gets richer and more Republican the further north you go and that factor favors Garrett as well. Towns like Upper Saddle River in northern Bergen county are some of the wealthiest municipalities in the country.

      Didn't Richard Nixon have a home in Upper Saddle River?

      I haven't been to that part of New Jersey in over 30 years now and even when I spent time there I only saw areas along Kinderkamack Road, not the the wealthier parts and certainly not Warren and Sussex Counties.
