GOP candidates reject debate invitation
District 40's Republican candidates decided not to participate in a debate sponsored by the League of Women Voters. In addition to scheduling conflicts, assembly incumbent Rumana (R) cited a concern that Democratic candidate William Brennan might file suit over statements made in the debate. Brennan has been involved in six lawsuits with New Jersey municipalities. In reply, Brennan noted that none of the suits were defamation suits (the most probable kind of suit to come out of a debate).
Running for re-election in the November 3, 2009 general election, Rumana received 42,220 votes (33%), defeating Democratic challengers Mark Bombace and John Agostinelli. He was bracketed with David Russo.
