  • Summary
  • The slate of legislative candidates for forthcoming state elections is now set. The 2014 campaign features fewer candidates (246) than 2010 (314) or 2012 (297)—indeed the fewest since 2006 (243). Numbers are particularly down for the assembly (208 vs. 273 in 2010 and 261 in 2012). Of 116 legislative races, 40 feature only one candidate, and 55 feature only one major party candidate.
