Asbury Park Press

District 14 is one of only three districts that the Asbury Park Press identified as competitive in 2011. The other two are Districts 2 and 38. 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 14 is roughly 21,000, (down from 25,000).[3]


Running for re-election in 2009, DeAngelo was bracketed with Linda Greenstein and defeated challengers Rob Calabro, William Harvey, Jr., and Gene Baldassari.[4][5]

National Political Awareness Test

DeAngelo's answers to the New Jersey State Legislative Election 2007 National Political Awareness Test are available. He did not answer the question to list his top priorities. [9]


Labor unions

On August 4, the New Jersey AFL-CIO voted to deny 22 Democrats, most notably Senators Stephen Sweeney and Donald Norcross, their endorsement in the 2011 general election. Earlier this year, these Democrats crossed the aisle and voted in favor of preventing public employee unions from collectively bargaining for health benefits and pensions--a move opposed by state labor unions.[10]

Although their endorsements were voted down, Sweeney and Norcross just barely missed the mark. A two-thirds vote of the endorsement convention is needed to bestow an official endorsement. Sweeney and Norcross fell short with 61% and 59%, respectively.[10]

Four Assembly Democrats (also union officials) who voted against the revocation of bargaining rights received enthusiastic endorsements--Thomas Giblin, Wayne DeAngelo, Joseph Egan and Nelson Albano all received endorsements on August 4. No Republicans were endorsed by the AFL-CIO.[10]
