Daniel Benson (b. November 22, 1975) is a Democratic member of the New Jersey General Assembly, representing the 14th District since 2011. He was selected to replace Linda Greenstein, who was elected to the state Senate.[1]

Elections

2011

See also: New Jersey General Assembly elections, 2011

Benson is running for re-election in 2011. He and incumbent Wayne DeAngelo ran unopposed in the June 7 primary. David Fried and Wayne Wittman ran unopposed in the Republican primary. However, Fried withdrew after the primary for health reasons and was replaced by Sheree McGowan.[2] Steven Welzer is also running as an Independent in the November 8 general election.[3]

Speculation

Asbury Park Press

District 14 is 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 is roughly 21,000, (down from 25,000).[4]
