Incumbents Gusciora and Muoio win in LD15

Mercer County Democrat Dan Toto’s quest for revenge ultimately didn’t pan out in Central Jersey’s 15th legislative district.

The Assembly incumbents — Reed Gusciora and newly-minted Liz Muoio — prevailed over the sole challenger in tonight’s primary race, according to an early prediction by the AP.

Toto, a Lawrenceville resident who works for the Middlesex County Housing Authority, re-mounted a campaign this year after his name was tossed from the ballot back in 2013 at the behest of Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno — but also Muoio, then (and still) chair of the Mercer County Democratic Committee, who had fought to keep the insurgent from the race by arguing he didn’t have enough signatures.

Muoio was tapped by the county committee to replace outgoing U.S. Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman in the 15th late last year.
