Incumbent Republican Frank LoBiondo – with his name recognition and reputation as a fighter for veterans, the elderly and the Jersey shore landscape, easily won an 11th term in Congress Tuesday with a victory over Democratic challenger Bill Hughes Jr.

Hughes, 47, a former federal prosecutor who works as a lawyer for the Cooper Levenson law firm here, was fighting to win back his father’s old seat.
