The New Jersey Globe is projecting that Democratic incumbents Ralph Caputo and Cleopatra Tucker have been re-elected to the New Jersey State Assembly in the 28th district.

They defeated Republicans Joy Bembry-Freeman and Antonio Pires.

Caputo was first elected to the New Jersey State Assembly in 1967 as a Republican and served two terms before losing the 1971 GOP primary.

He later switched parties and won a seat on the Essex County Board of Freeholders as a Democrat in 200 and returned to the Assembly in 2007 when he and Cleopatra Tucker defeated incumbents Craig Stanley and Oadline Truitt in the Democratic primary.

Pires ran for Essex County Sheriff in 2015 and won 21% against incumbent Armando Fontoura.
