Alonso is a candidate for District 38 of the New Jersey General Assembly. Alonso and Richard Goldberg were bracketed together and defeated [Joseph Gant]], Scott Verrone, and Wojciech Siemaszkiewicz in the Republican primary. Connie Terranova Wagner and Timothy Eustace ran unopposed in the June 7 Democratic primary. Vinko Grskovic is running as an Independent in the November 8 general election as well.[1]

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]
