Schumer endorses Lautenberg 2014 re-election

U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) tonight endorsed U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) for re-election in 2014 at a fundraiser for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC).

“One more thing, we absolutely want him to run again; we hope he continues to run for one more term,” said Schumer at the tail end of his remarks at the Stony Hill Inn in Hackensack.

The pair raised $100,000 toward 2012 senate races, including that of U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ).

"I don't think what he's doing tonight, the method by which he's doing it helps to build a trustful relationship."
