Rabbi Shmuley Boteach lost his bid for a congressional seat from New Jersey.

The Orthodox rabbi, author and media personality was defeated handily in his effort to unseat Rep. Bill Pascrell, a Democrat. Boteach mounted a longshot run as a Republican in the heavily Democratic northeastern New Jersey district.

Pascrell had defeated a fellow congressman, Steve Rothman, in a redistricting-induced party primary.
