Jersey Journal endorses Menendez

By David Wildstein, November 02 2018 9:43 am

The Jersey Journal has endorsed Bob Menendez for a third term in the U.S. Senate.

“We can wag our fingers and say he should have retired and let another accomplished New Jerseyan take his place on the Democratic primary ballot – which we believe to be true. But, in the end, we are still left with the same choice on Tuesday: Menendez or Hugin,” the editorial board wrote.  “Now is not the time in our state’s or nation’s history for a protest vote.”

The newspaper also took a swipe at Republican Bob Hugin, saying he would be a yes man for Donald Trump.

“Hugin has his own ethical challenges, accused of profiting off cancer patients when he led the Celgene pharmaceutical company, the newspaper said.  “Hugin is campaigning as a fresh face, but what he’s mostly brought to the table are piles of cash and negative ads.”
