Alonso and Richard Goldberg were bracketed together and defeated Joseph Gant, Scott Verrone, and Wojciech Siemaszkiewicz in the Republican primary.

Speculation

Asbury Park Press

District 38 is one of only three districts that the Asbury Park Press identified as competitive in 2011. The other two are Districts 2 and 14. 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 38 is roughly 12,000, (down from 22,000).[2]

NJ Spotlight

NJ Spotlight has identified District 38 as one of the most competitive districts in the state, with potential for the GOP to pickup a seat in the Assembly.[3]
