    Tea Party Tests in NJ Primaries

    Tomorrow's primary elections in New Jersey will put the Tea Party movement to the test.

    The question: will conservative challengers defeat some of New Jersey's more moderate Republicans?

    Two races to watch:

    In the 11th District, Congressman Rodney Frelinghuysen faces a challenge from Morristown tea party leader Richard Luzzi.

    And in the 7th District, Leonard Lance faces a challenge from three tea party activists.

    The Tea Party has resonated in New Jersey, partly because of the state's high tax rates.
