New Jersey General Assembly District 2
Alisa Cooper is a candidate for the 2011 Democratic Party nomination for District 2 of the New Jersey General Assembly. She is bracketed with Damon Tyner in the primary. Cooper and Tyner face Gary Stein in the primary on June 7. The top-two voter getters will advance to the general election on November 8, 2011.
With 2nd District Republican incumbent Vincent Polistina choosing to run for the state senate, NJ Spotlight has identified the 2nd as a potential place for the GOP to lose a seat in the Assembly. Following redistricting the 2nd became more Democratic, losing Republican Galloway Township and picking up Democratic Somers Point, Buena and Buena Vista.
