The legend of Napolitano and Stanton

Mike Panter and Bob Morgan are not likely to forget the names of Ann Politano and Judith Stanton, the two Green Party candidates who were probably the spoilers in the race for State Assembly in the 12th district. Napolitano won 2,303 votes and Stanton received 2,044 — more than the Republican margin of victory in this district. Jennifer Beck ran nearly 1,300 votes ahead of Morgan, while Declan O’Scanlon is leading Panter by about 107 votes. Democrats say the strong showing of the Green Party was a result of the Asbury Park Press’ endorsement of only the Green candidate in the race for Monmouth County Freeholder.
