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 defeating seven-term Republican incumbent Scott Garrett in New Jersey's 5th congressional district. During the 2018 federal midterm elections, Democratic candidates Tom Malinowski, Mikie Sherrill, Jeff Van Drew, and Andy Kim won an additional four seats for their party.
