Speculation

Asbury Park Press

District 2 was one of only three districts that the Asbury Park Press identified as competitive in 2011. The other two are Districts 14 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 2 was roughly 9,200 (down from 11,000).[4]

NJ Spotlight

With assembly incumbent Vincent Polistina (R) choosing to run for the State Senate, NJ Spotlight has identified the District 2 as a potential place for the GOP to lose a seat in the Assembly. Following redistricting, the District 2 gained Democratic communities, losing Republican Galloway Township and picking up Democratic Somers Point, Buena and Buena Vista.[5]

Campaign donors

2011

District 2 tops fundraising

As of October 25, candidates for District 2 have raised $3,762,118--according to the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission. This makes District 2 number one in fundraising for the year. Candidates for the district have spent $3,161,517 of their campaign funds.[6]

Issues

Campaign themes

The District 2 Democratic campaign site lists five key policy positions:

  • Taxes: "Provide real tax relief to overburdened seniors and middle-class families by ending tax cuts for multi-millionaires and restoring seniors' property tax rebates."
  • Leadership: "Provide independent leadership by working across party lines with the Governor to fix Trenton while standing up to him on policies that hurt seniors and middle-class families."
  • Spending: "End the government spending spree with a freeze on state spending, independent audits of every department and public pension reforms."
  • Political perks: "Slash taxpayer-funded political perks including free EZ-passes, housing allowances, luxury cars and luxury boxes at sports events for politicos and bureaucrats."
  • Jobs: "Attract new business and jobs to New Jersey by providing competitive tax incentives, improving access to start-up capital, and eliminating roadblocks like bureaucratic red tape."

2nd District debate

On September 15, the District 2 Assembly candidates took part in a debate sponsored by the William J. Hughes Center for Public Policy and The Press of Atlantic City.

Endorsements

State leaders pick sides in District 2

Several powerful state leaders have expressed support for their chosen candidates in District 2. Senate Majority Leader Barbara Buono (D) and Chairman of the state Democratic Committee John Wisniewski (D) have personally endorsed the Democratic ticket in District 2, attending a rally in support of the candidates. The Republican candidates have garnered the support of Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno (R), who attended an event for GOP campaign staff in District 2. The visits further highlight the importance of the district in November's election.[7]
