The district from 2003 to 2013


Republican Scott Garrett defeated Democrat Paul Aronsohn and independent candidate R. Matthew Fretz 55%–44% in the United States general elections, 2006.[3]

Gottheimer defeated Garrett in the 2016 general election, making Garrett the only one of the state's 12 incumbents to lose his seat.[4]

Counties and municipalities in the district

The redrawn New Jersey's Fifth Congressional District is predominantly rural in area, but now the newly added suburban and urban Bergen County areas closer to New York City contain over 75% of voters.

The district is an L-shaped district comprising the rural northern and western parts of New Jersey. A portion of the district is in suburban northern Bergen County, as well as the Urban Central.

Historically, most of the areas in the district have generally been favorable for Republicans. This is especially true of the western portion, which contains some of the most Republican areas in the Northeast. However, Bergen County has trended Democratic in recent elections, though not as overwhelmingly as in the more urbanized southern portion. Partly due to a strong performance in Bergen County, Gottheimer unseated 14-year Republican incumbent Garrett in 2016.

For the 113th and successive Congresses (based on redistricting following the 2010 United States Census), the district contains all or portions of four counties and 79 municipalities.[5][6]
