Sources say that tracking polls taken by Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy's campaign show the incumbent around 53%, and around 55% with leaners. His closest rival, former Assemblyman Louis Manzo is holding at around 15%, and Assemblyman L. Harvey Smith is running third. Healy needs to win 50% of the vote tonight to avoid a runoff.
Some of the City Council races remain tight as the Healy campaign hopes for a bump to help their slate prevail. Insiders say there are potentially close races in Wards C, D and E.
