Corfield was a candidate for District 16 of the New Jersey General Assembly. Corfield and Joe Camarota ran unopposed in the June 7 Democratic primary. She was defeated in the November 8 general election by Peter Biondi (R) and Jack Ciattarelli (R).
District 16 was significantly reshaped in 2011, moving its population center away from Somerset County. All of the Republican candidates (two incumbents and one challenger) were from the Somerset area. However, NJSpotlight noted that despite these changes and balanced partisan registration, the Democratic ticket was not very familiar to voters.
