New Jersey lost a congressional seat following the results of the 2010 Census, bringing its number of representatives down to 12. A new map was approved on December 23, 2011. Under the new map, Steve Rothman's old 9th District has been split between Republican Scott Garrett's 5th District and Democrat Bill Pascrell's 8th District. Rothman has chosen to run against his fellow Democrat in a largely Democratic 9th district rather than face Garrett in the Republican-favored 5th.[4]
