Election 2015 timeline: New Jersey Democrats pick up Assembly seats ...

New Jersey Democrats have picked up at least three seats in the state Assembly, including with an upset in the state’s 11th District.

Democrats Joann Downey and Eric Houghtaling defeated Republican incumbent Assemblywomen Mary Pat Angelini and Caroline Casagrande in New Jersey’s 11th District.

Democrats had targeted the traditionally Republican district this year. Republicans have held both seats in the district since 1992.

The shore district is entirely in Monmouth County and includes Asbury Park and Long Branch.

Houghtaling is a Neptune Township council member. Downey is an attorney from Freehold Township.

Democrats also picked up a seat in southern New Jersey.

At least there was some good news. I am still bummed about Kentucky. :(
