MORRIS COUNTY — In Morris County, Republicans continued their winning streak, maintaining a half-century record where Democrats have not secured a countywide election victory.

In the county commissioner race, incumbent Republican Tayfun Selen emerged victorious over Democrat Jonathan Sackett, albeit with a narrower margin. Selen secured 54% of the votes, compared to Sackett’s 46%.

Tayfun Selen initially joined the Morris County Commissioners in 2020 to fill a one-year unexpired term and subsequently won re-election for a full term in 2021. This year, he encountered a challenging primary from Paul DeGroot, who had bested him in a 2022 congressional primary. However, with support from the county GOP, Selen triumphed with a 54% to 46% vote margin.

On the other side, Jonathan Sackett is serving his second term on the Rockaway Township Council and holds the position of chair for the Rockaway Democratic Committee.
