FLEMINGTON, NJ - Republican Hunterdon freeholder incumbents Suzanne Lagay and John Lanza handily won re-election today, receiving 42,728 and 40,718 votes respectively, according to unofficial results released by Hunterdon County Clerk Mary Melfi. Democrat Margaret W. Browne, the sole challenger who did not run an active campaign, received 22,803 votes.

County Sheriff Fred Brown and County Clerk Mary Melfi each ran unopposed. County voters awarded them 50,995 and 51,885 votes respectively.

Clinton Township resident Leonard Lance is seeking re-election to the House of Representatives, and was challenged by Democrat Peter Jacob. In the county, Lance was the top vote-getter with 40,378 votes, compared with Jacob's  23,540 votes. But the results of the race won't be known until later.

In the presidential race, Hunterdon voters overwhelmingly chose Republican Donald Trump over Democrat Hillary Clinton, 38,565 to  28,797. But most projections show Clinton winning the state.
