  1. Of course he will- said at 10:23 am on January 20th, 2018:

    and, being New Jersey, he will probably win again. Pathetic. I say, Kim Guadagno for Senate!

  2. Tim H said at 1:49 pm on January 20th, 2018:

    JEN BECK for Senate! We need to get her to run!

  3. Guess what? said at 3:00 pm on January 20th, 2018:

    Menenendez will win, too. The NJGOP has not seriously gone after either Senate seat in years. Over the years, whether good candidates or bad, defeat is a given.

  4. Menendez may want to run said at 3:26 pm on January 20th, 2018:

    But I wonder if the Democrats would have the courage to drop him. Oh, wait; that’s a silly thought.

    One thing for certain. NJ.com, Asbury Park Press, Associated Press MSNBC and CNN will be calling for the Menendez resignation. The Menendez “sugar daddy” Doctor Melgen was found guilty in federal court of a $100 million medicare fraud (you know stealing from all of us). The media calls it a “billing dispute”. Booker and the CORRUPT DEMOCRAT MACHINE continue to prop up Menendez. Menendez and Booker are beyond shameless hucksters.

  6. But, we will still said at 11:01 pm on January 20th, 2018:

    likely be stuck with them both. NJ, please, wake up and get better representation down there- seriously, we continue to settle, and be laughing stocks. It has to stop!

  7. Tim H said at 11:53 am on January 21st, 2018:

    No way any liberal paper will call for him to resign. Forget it. The press is in the tank for the left. We need JEN BECK to run against him. A great contrast against this crook! #JENBECKFORUSSENATE
