Race Analysis

10/28/10 -- This Atlantic City/suburban Philly district elected Republican Jim Saxton to the House for a little bit more than two decades before he chose to retire.  Democrat John Adler claimed the open seat by a surprisingly narrow margin in 2008.  Adler now is in a tough fight against former professional football player Jon Runyan, who is holding the incumbent below 50 percent.
