District 10 encompasses 10 Jersey Shore communities in Ocean County: Bay Head, Brick, Island Heights, Lakehurst, Lavallette, Manchester, Mantoloking, Point Pleasant Beach, Seaside Heights and Toms River.
The district leans “red,” with 27 percent of voters registered as Republicans, 20 percent as Democrats, and most of the rest unaffiliated.
The district is represented in the Assembly by a pair of Republicans who are seeking re-election. They are Assemblymen Dave Wolfe of Brick, a professor at Ocean County College who has served in the lower house since 1992, and Gregory McGuckin, an attorney who lives in Toms River.
Seeking to unseat them are Democrats Valter Must of Toms River and Kimberley S. Casten of Brick.
