They then defeated Howard Kleinhendler, Shaun O'Rourke, and David Schneck in the November 8 general election. Both Rible and Kean were incumbents in different districts, but redistricting moved them into District 30. Kean was formerly the District 11 state senator and Rible was formerly an Asssemblyman for District 11.[2]
