Speculation

Molone retirement

With Redistricting moving his residence out of the 30th District, Joseph Malone, III was forced to run for re-election to the 7th district in 2011. Since Malone brought with him the status of a nine-term incumbent, NJ Spotlight identified the 7th District as a potential place for the GOP to pickup a seat in the Assembly.[9] However, following the primary election, Malone announced that he had decided not to run for re-election, but denied that redistricting had motivated his retirement.[10]

Redistricting

District 7 is split between both parties, with Republicans controlling the Senate seat and Democrats controlling the two Assembly seats. PolitickerNJ notes that several Republican-leaning areas were added to the area in redistricting, but since these districts came from a solidly Republican districts, Democratic turnout in these areas may expand in 2011. Joseph Malone, III (R) was also moved into District 7 via redistricting, but decided to retire. Jack Conners (D), on the other hand, was moved out of District 7 by redistricting and ultimately decided to retire. Troy Singleton was quickly appointed to replace Connors in the Assembly and run in District 7.[11][12]

2009

Running for re-election in the 2009 general election, Conaway defeated challengers Leah J. Arter and Harry Adams. He was bracketed with Jack Conners.[13][14]
