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. Steven Welzer is also running as an Independent in the November 8 general election.
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).
