Kennedy, Carter win in 22nd district

Incumbents defeat Armstead allies in Democratic primary

The New Jersey Globe is calling the Democratic primary for State Assembly in the 22nd district for incumbents James Kennedy (D-Rahway) and Linda Carter (D-Plainfield).

They have defeated their primary opponents, Carlos Rivas and Mark Lighten.

Rivas and Lighten are allies of Linden Mayor Derek Armstead.

Kennedy and Carter will face Republican Patricia Quattrocchi in the general election.

Carter won a special election last November following the death of longtime Assemblyman Jerry Green.  She defeated Quattrocchi’s husband, John, by a 59%-31% margin.

John Quattrocchi had run for Assembly in 2017 and ran 14,081 votes behind Green.

Patricia Quattrocchi ran for Union County freeholder in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2017 and 2018, and for mayor of Garwood in 2010.  She has never faced Carter before.
