With legislative races fast approaching and very few competitive races to sate the appetites of political junkies we at PolitickerNJ have launched a new feature to help with the malaise.
Beginning today we will begin profiling featured races throughout the state. We will focus not only on the handful of competitive races but also contests only the junkies will watch. We’ll be looking for the backstories, the inside angles and the nuggets of political geekdom you won’t find anywhere else.
Today we begin with Senate contests in LD38 and LD33 – 38 could be competitive, 33 not so much, but that doesn’t mean there’s not a reason to pay attention.
Along the way we’ll take a look at the other two competitive districts – LD2 and LD14 – as well as others like LD27, where Dick Codey storms the GOP bastion of Morris County, and LD 11, where an all-female Republican slate looks to keep the district in GOP hands and Democrats say demographics will likely tilt the new district in their favor by mid-decade.
With that, here are the first two installments:
Feature Race: LD 33’s Stack and the real post-redistricting adversary
Featured Race: Competitive District 38 senate race pits Gordon against Driscoll
