Presidential election results

Democrat Jon Corzine defeated Republican Doug Forrester by a 3-to-1 margin in the 2005 gubernatorial race. Both Republican candidates failed to carry even one municipality within the county. Former New Jersey governor Jon Corzine was a resident of Hoboken for many years, including his time in office (2006-2010). In the 2009 New Jersey gubernatorial election, Corzine received 76,145 votes from Hudson County to Republican Chris Christie's 29,301, but Christie won the state overall, beating Corzine by 3 percentage points statewide. In the 2013 gubernatorial race, the county, along with neighboring Essex, was the only one to vote against Republican incumbent Governor Chris Christe.
