Quijano, Holley in 20th district

Incumbents defeat Kenneth Jones in Democratic primary

The New Jersey Globe is calling the Democratic primary for State Assembly in the 20th district for incumbents Annette Quijano (D-Elizabeth) and Jamal Holley (D-Roselle).

They have defeated their primary opponent, Kenneth Jones.

Quijano and Holley will face Republicans Ashraf Hanna and Charles Donnelly in the general election.

Republicans have never won the Elizabeth-based legislative district and have not sent a Republican to the State Assembly from Elizabeth since Nicholas St. John LaCorte won in 1963.

Hanna challenged State Sen. Joseph Cryan (D-Union) in 2017 and lost by 67 points.  Quijano and Holley collectively won 90% of the vote that year.
