3:59 PM Rumor Watch: Stay tuned, Andrews is fighting back and will release big endorsements shortly

Rob Andrews was endorsed by Newark Democratic leader Steve Adubato today, and sources say a screaming match between Adubato and four-term Sen. Frank Lautenberg resulted in Adubato telling the 84-year-old Senator that it was time to call it quits. More endorsements for Andrews are expected today, as is Bergen County Democratic Chairman Joseph Ferriero's announcement that he will back Lautenberg.

"I’m excited as hell about CD 5. We have encouraged Congressman [Steve] Israel to get involved in CD 5."
