There were 12 United States congressional districts in New Jersey based on results from the 2010 Census. There were once as many as 15. The fifteenth district was lost after the 1980 Census, the fourteenth district was lost after the 1990 Census, and the thirteenth district was lost after the 2010 Census.
During the 114th Congress, Democrats held six seats and Republicans held six seats in New Jersey's delegation to the United States House of Representatives. The 115th Congress saw Democrats holding seven seats and Republicans holding five, with Democrat Josh Gottheimer replacing seven-term Republican incumbent Scott Garrett in New Jersey's 5th congressional district. During the 2018 federal midterm elections, New Jersey Democrats won an additional four seats in the chamber. Consequently, Democrats Tom Malinowski, Mikie Sherrill, Jeff Van Drew, and Andy Kim are all freshman U.S. Representatives during the 116th Congress. Only the 4th District is held by a Republican, Congressman Chris Smith, during the 116th Congress.
