26th House District
State Rep. John Viola won reelection, easily defeating Republican Justin Cruice in the race for the District 26 house seat.
Viola, a Democrat, earned 74 percent of the vote compared to Cruice’s 26 percent.
“It feels good,” Viola said. “Naturally, my opponent worked his tail off.”
District 26 covers an area south of Newark, stretching from Interstate 95 to Route 40.
Viola, who will enter his eleventh term in the state house, said his record speaks for itself.
