Chiusano is running for re-election in 2011. He and incumbent Alison McHose ran unopposed in the Republican Primary on June 7. Leslie Huhn and Jim Nye ran unopposed in the Democratic primary. Rose Ann Salanitri and Mark Quick are also running in the November 8 general election as Independents.[3]

Debates

On July 7, 2011, Democrats Ed Selby, Leslie Huhn and Jim Nye sent a letter to Republican incumbents Alison McHose, Gary Chiusano and Steven Oroho, challenging them to a series of debates to take place before the November 8 general election. Leslie Huhn stated that Republicans have "had it too easy" in recent elections, and that they have taken their constituents for granted for too long.[4]

The Democrats gave Republicans 10 days to respond. The same day (July 7), Lou Crescitelli, spokesman for the District 24 Republicans, confirmed the GOP incumbents will participate in the debates.[4]

Since redistricting took place, 11 new county municipalities were added to the district. Ed Selby (D) suggested the need to "expand"[4] because the newly annexed counties might not know the candidates as well.[4]

The invitation to debate was not sent to the two Independent candidates in Assembly District 24, Rose Ann Salanitri and Mark Quick.[4]

Running for re-election in the November 3, 2009 general election, Chiusano received 46,557 votes (41%), defeating Democratic challenger Frederick Katz, Jr..[5] He was bracketed with Alison McHose.[6]
