Jeffrey Nash, Ian Leonard and Michelle Gentek easily defeat the Republicans running for freeholder.
The Democratic slate for Camden County freeholder easily defeated their Republican challengers Tuesday, keeping the county's governing body all Democratic.

Republicans received roughly half of those votes in this blue-colored county. The vote totals are: Jim Pearce (58,697), Ian Gill (53,286) and Eugene Lawrence (52,211). All vote totals are unofficial until certified officials.
