The Press of Atlantic City has endorsed Republican Assemblymen Vincent Polistina (R-Egg Harbor) and John Amodeo (R-Margate) for re-election to second terms. "It's a tough choice between good candidates," the newspaper said. "Voters could be served well by any of the four candidates running."
"Democratic challengers Reginald Floyd and Jimmy Martinez don't make a compelling enough case to unseat two incumbents who have been thoughtful, hard-working legislators, and who are able to put the good of the Atlantic City region above partisan interests when the two conflict," the editorial wrote. "Vince Polistina and John Amodeo have a solid record of working for the region. They broke party lines and became the only two Republicans to vote for a New Jersey stimulus bill because it could help Atlantic City. They worked to protect the casino industry in the event of another state shutdown, and we have no doubt they will work diligently to prevent video lottery terminals at racetracks."
