Carter has $7,500k in bank for special Assembly race

Dems haven’t been seriously challenged in 22nd district in 9 years

Assemblywoman Linda Carter (D-Plainfield) has raised $10,225 for her campaign to hold the 22nd district seat of the late Jerry Green.    She has $7,490 cash-on-hand.

Carter won a special election convention in May after Green passed away during his fourteenth term in the Assembly.  She is a former Union County Freeholder and Plainfield city councilwoman.

The Republican candidate is John Quattrochi, a retired liquor salesman who ran against Green in 2017 and lost.  He has not reported raising any money.

The Union-Somerset-Middlesex 22nd district has 53,773 Democrats, 19,464 Republicans, and 47,878 unaffiliated voters.

The district has been held by Democrats since it was created following the 2000 census.  The last race to even resemble being close came in 2009, when Scotch Plains Mayor Martin Marks came with 2,087 votes of Green.
