Incumbent Republicans Joan DeVoe and Joe Hemphill maintained the status quo for Rumson by winning another election tonight, securing an all-Republican council.

Democratic challengers Michael Steinhorn and Philip Wagner put up a little fight, but voters seem OK with how things work.

“I feel elated that people have continued to show confidence in me,” DeVoe said. “I’ve heard them, will continue to listen to them and keep their interests in the front of my mind.”

Here are the numbers, as per the Monmouth County Clerk, as of 10:40p:
