Bill Pascrell Wins


Longtime congressman and former mayor of Paterson, Bill Pascrell, Democrat, has defeated his main opponent Shmuley Boteach, Republican, in the 9th District congressional race.

Despite large contributions from a Las Vegas billionaire, Mr Boteach fared badly against the wildly popular Democrat.

Mr Pascrell received 77 percent of the total votes; Mr Boteach only 22 percent, giving the former a landslide victory.
