Welzer previously ran unsuccessfully for election to the U.S. House in 2008 and 2010. He serves on the Executive Committee of the Green Party of New Jersey and the National Committee of the Green Party of the United States.
Welzer was a Green Party candidate for District 14 of the New Jersey General Assembly. He was defeated in the November 8 general election. Daniel Benson and Wayne DeAngelo ran unopposed in the Democratic primary. David Fried and Wayne Wittman defeated Bruce MacDonald in the Republican primary. However, Fried withdrew after the primary for health reasons and was replaced by Sheree McGowan. The general election will be held on November 8.
Asbury Park Press
District 14 was one of only three districts that the Asbury Park Press identified as competitive in 2011. The other two are Districts 2 and 38. Districts 2 and 38 may lean more Republican after 2011 redistricting, and District 14 may still favor Democrats. As evidence, they cite a drop in registered Democrats in Districts 2 and 38, and only a small decrease in registered Democrats in District 14. History has shown, argues APP, that districts where Democrats hold less than a 10,000 registered voter advantage typically favor the GOP. The Democratic registration advantage in District 14 was roughly 21,000, (down from 25,000).
