District 11 was reshaped to become a minority opportunity district. While NJSpotlight predicted a win for the GOP ticket, PolitickerNJ noted that the Asbury Park Press endorsement of Vin Gopal (D) could increase his chance of winning. Jennifer Beck (R) and Caroline Casagrande (R) were also endorsed--APP declined to endorse Angelini, Raymond Santiago (D), and Kathleen Horgan (D).
