Sources: Pallone running for U.S. Senate

U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone (D-6) is running for the U.S. Senate, sources told PolitickerNJ.com.

The veteran Congressman is talking to Democratic Party leaders, and making calls to party members informing them of his intent in advance of the Aug. 13 special primary election.

"Since the print publication of this list, Christie, in his capacity as chairman of the Republican Governors Association, helped decisively turn the midterm elections in the Republicans' favor, which makes him a bit more influential than we initially gave him credit for, post-Bridgegate. So when your state governments do absolutely nothing for you for the next four years, be sure to thank him!"
