New Jersey - In a decisive victory, Indian-American cardiologist Dr. Rajesh Mohan has won the Republican primary for New Jersey’s Third Congressional District. Mohan, a Holmdel-based physician, received 12,677 votes, accounting for 38% of the total, and defeated immigration consultant Shirley Maia-Cusick and financial advisors Gregory Sobocinski and Michael Francis Faccone.


This win sets the stage for a showdown in November against Socialist Democrat Assemblyman Herbert Conaway, Jr., for the seat vacated by Rep. Andy Kim. Kim, who is vying to succeed Sen. Bob Menendez, won the Democratic primary.


Following his victory, Mohan expressed gratitude to the residents of NJ’s 3rd Congressional District and promised to bring common-sense solutions to the table.


He emphasized his commitment to reducing regulations, incentivizing businesses, and keeping jobs at home, contrasting his approach with his opponent's socialist policies.


The 3rd Congressional District, covering parts of Burlington, Mercer, and Monmouth counties, presents a competitive landscape. Despite recent redistricting favoring Democrats, the district remains a battleground with a significant portion of unaffiliated voters.


Dr. Mohan's victory highlights the growing influence of Indian-Americans in U.S. politics, promising a fresh perspective and dedicated representation for New Jersey residents.


Dr. Rajesh Mohan's primary win marks a significant milestone, setting up a crucial contest in November as he aims to bring his medical expertise and conservative principles to Congress.
