NJ Dem Candidate in Full Panic Mode

Democrat Senate candidate Bob Menendez is in danger of losing his seat to an insurgent Republican candidate. Fox News reports:

New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez’ once-comfortable lead over Republican Bob Hugin has narrowed in recent polls amid withering attacks over his ethics challenges and personal controversies, and now one rating outfit has shifted the Senate race into the “toss-up” column.

Cook Political Report, reflecting how unexpectedly competitive the contest has become, announced Friday it is moving the race from “lean Democratic” to “toss-up.”

“The contest isn’t about anything else but Democratic U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez and his ethics problems,” Cook Political Report’s Jennifer Duffy wrote, noting wealthy pharmaceutical exec Hugin has outspent the incumbent by nearly 3-1, with much of that going toward brutal TV ads.

The imbalance, and potential risk for Menendez, has led a major Senate Democratic super PAC to jump in with its own multimillion-dollar ad buys.

Democrats have had to bail out Menendez with multi-million ad buys, which could end up saving his seat but diverting critical resources away from other close elections.

Democrats do love and support their outlaws.

He is a crook and the people know it, but elect him anyway. They must like their officials to steal their tax dollars. They all deserve each other.

Menendez has had his term, but his politics and corruption has failed him. Give someone else a chance.
