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 [[Redistricting in New Jersey|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).<ref>[http://www.app.com/article/20110925/NJOPINION06/309250012/Race-for-Legislature-is-on ''Asbury Park Press,'' "Race for Legislature is on," September 23, 2011]</ref>

Speculation

Asbury Park Press

District 14 was 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 could lean more Republican after 2011 redistricting, and District 14 may still favor Democrats. As evidence, they cited a drop in registered Democrats in Districts 2 and 38, and only a small decrease in registered Democrats in District 14. History has shown, argued 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).[9]

Endorsements

2013

In 2013, DeAngelo’s endorsements included the following:[13]

  • The New Jersey AFL-CIO

Labor unions

On June 7, the New Jersey Building and Construction Trades Council announced its endorsement of 26 Democrats and seven Republican candidates running in the 2013 general election. The trades council's endorsement placed special emphasis on the re-election of the "Building Trades Seven." The group -- composed of legislators who are also members of New Jersey union building trades -- includes senators DeAngelo, Stephen Sweeney, John Amodeo, Troy Singleton, Donald Norcross, Joseph Egan and Thomas Giblin.[14]

In addition to its endorsement of the 33 Senate candidates, the trades council also endorsed 67 Assembly candidates -- 55 Democrats and 12 Republicans.[14]

2011

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.[15]

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.[15]

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.[15]

Personal

DeAngelo and his wife, Toni, have two daughters: Natalie and Julia.
