First female legislative team

If the Republican candidates win in the general election, District 11 will feature the state's first all-female legislative team. In addition to Angelini and Casagrande, Jennifer Beck (R) won District 11 the New Jersey State Senate.[7]


District 11 was reshaped to become a minority opportunity district. While NJSpotlight predicts a win for the GOP ticket, PolitickerNJ notes that the Asbury Park Press endorsement of Vin Gopal (D) may increase his chances of election. Jennifer Beck (R) and Caroline Casagrande (R) were also endorsed--APP declined to endorse Angelini, Raymond Santiago (D), and Kathleen Horgan (D). In addition, the Democratic challengers in District 11 have raised over $100,000.[8][9]


Running for re-election in the November 3, 2009 general election, Angelini received 36,100 votes (31%), defeating challengers J. Randy Bishop and Richard Bolger.[10] She was bracketed with David Rible.[11]
