But there is good news for Democrat Andy Kim in New Jersey's Third Congressional District: he's now won that hotly contested race.

In a closely watched, tight race, Democrat Andy Kim was declared the winner in New Jersey's Third Congressional District Wednesday.
His opponent Rep. Tom MacArthur said Wednesday night that he had called Kim to concede. Kim will be the first Asian American elected to the House from New Jersey, and the first Korean American elected to Congress in two decades.
Come January, Democrats will have a majority in the U.S. House and a wave of new members from our region. Reporter Jonathan Tamari sat down with some of them to discuss what they're going to do with that power.
Jimmy Butler's highly-anticipated debut with the Sixers wasn't all that magical. The Sixers surrendered a 16-point fourth-quarter lead en route to losing to the Orlando Magic last night, 111-106.
The swingman, who was officially acquired on Monday, spent the game getting used to the team and still came away with 14 points on 6-for-12 shooting to go with two assists.
Wednesday just wasn't a great day for local basketball teams and high expectations: Villanova lost to Michigan 73-46 in a rematch of the 2018 national championship game that turned out to be no match.
The Burlington County Prosecutor's Office has announced a news conference this afternoon on the investigation of the couple accused of squandering the money raised to benefit Johnny Bobbitt Jr., the homeless man whose act of kindness and appeal to help him went viral last year.
The couple, Kate McClure and Mark D'Amico, raised about $400,000 for Bobbitt via GoFundMe. Bobbitt has since accused them of using the money as their own, forcing him again to panhandle on city streets. The Burlington County Prosecutor's Office launched a criminal investigation into the dispute in September.
