APP endorses Menendez

The Asbury Park Press today endorsed the re-election of U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ).

“New Jerseyans need someone representing them who knows how Washington works and who has proven himself as someone who fights hard for middle-class citizens. Menendez, who is seeking a second six-year term, has represented New Jersey well. He has important committee assignments and has brought home substantial funding for New Jersey. He also is confident the Democrats will be able to relieve the gridlock in Washington. Given the current circumstances, we believe Menendez is the best choice for New Jersey.”
