The Obama campaign is so confident of winning New Jersey comfortably that the prime responsibility of its New Jersey staffers is to recruit volunteers to go to Pennsylvania for the rest of the campaign, according to a high level Democrat who spoke to MMM on the condition of anonymity.
“Menendez will win by at least 10 points,” said the source, “the internal numbers have Obama up by 18 and Menendez up by 12. Elsewhere in the country, the Senate and Congressional candidates are doing better than Obama, but not in Jersey. Menendez needs Obama’s coattails, but he’ll have them.”
The source said Menendez is working harder than he ever has in his life. “He’s out shaking hands with commuters every day at 5:30am and doesn’t stop campaigning until midnight.”
“We don’t see Kyrillos working that hard,” the source said as a dig to the GOP challenger.
Menendez 2012 Communications Director Paul Brubaker has still not called back.
