Jill LaZare, a two-time Assembly and one-time State Senate candidate, will run for Assembly in the 21st legislative district in 2019.
The district is currently represented by Senate Minority Leader Tom Kean, Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick and Assemblywoman Nancy Munoz.
LaZare, an attorney with a practice based in Summit, challenged Kean in 2017, losing by about 10 points.
She ran against Munoz and Bramnick in 2013 and 2015.
The district has historically been unfavorable for Democratic candidates and promises a tough race in 2019, as Bramnick and Munoz have no shortage of resources at their backs, but LaZare said she thinks the dynamics of next year’s contest will play to her favor.
Given, Rep.-elect Tom Malinowski’s victory over incumbent Rep. Leonard Lance, she could be on to something.
