Decision Due On NJ’s New Congressional Map

New Jersey will soon find out which of its 13 congressmen will likely be out of a job come November.

The head of a panel charged with redrawing the state’s district map will announce his decision Friday.

John Farmer Jr. spent most of Thursday weighing maps submitted by Republicans and Democrats. He’s the tie-breaking 13th member of a bipartisan panel.

The new map will combine two northern New Jersey districts and could set up a re-election contest between Republican Scott Garrett and Democrat Steve Rothman. Garrett is among the most conservative members of Congress. Rothman, an early endorser of Barack Obama for president in 2008, is among the more liberal members.

Farmer will decide whether the new district will favor Republicans, Democrats, or neither party.
