The New Jersey General Assembly is comprised of 40 districts, each represented by two members. Therefore, 80 races were held in 1999, 79 of which were contested. However, there were 10 races in which challengers did not raise any money. Incumbents ran in 100 percent of the races, and 98 percent of them won. No statewide or Senate races ran in 1999. In the year 2001 the entire Senate and Assembly will run for a two-year term, and the governor will run for a four-year term. (The NJ Senate runs after every Census for a two-year term, and then for two consecutive four-year terms.)
