The spin of two Bobs

The campaigns of Bob Menendez and Bob Hugin responded today with comment about a new Stockton Poll showing the race for New Jersey’s U.S. Senate seat in a statistical dead heat:

Menendez  for Senate:

“We knew this would be a competitive race given the millions greedy drug company CEO Bob Hugin spent on TV he made off the backs of cancer victims and their families, but we are confident Senator Menendez will prevail on Election Day.  No one has fought harder and longer and delivered more for New Jersey than Bob Menendez.  The energy and enthusiasm for Bob Menendez is palpable where ever he goes around the state.  Democrats are energized and understand what’s at stake.  His message is getting out there and people are responding.  At the end of the day, New Jerseyans will choose a proven fighter who will stand up to Trump’s dangerous policies, not a Trump, Christie Republican like Bob Hugin who made a fortune ripping off cancer patients and will never have our back and will just be another vote for Trump’s dangerous policies.

“The Stockton Poll historically underestimates Democratic performance; this is no different.  At the same time in the race in 2016 and 2014, they undercut Hillary Clinton’s statewide performance by nine points and Cory Booker’s by seven, respectively, as each won by double-digit margins.  In 2012, Stockton had Senator Menendez with 52%, only to wind up with 59% en route to a 20-point victory.  If history holds, Bob Menendez beats greedy drug company CEO Bob Hugin on Nov. 6.  Against a self-funded multimillionaire with virtually unlimited resources, we’d take that any day.”

Hugin for Senate:

Bob Hugin: “Today’s poll is no surprise. Since launching my campaign, I’ve made over 400 campaign stops and met thousands of voters throughout the state,” said Hugin. “Whether you’re a Democrat, Republican, or Independent, voters want a Senator who will put New Jersey first and represent them with honor and integrity. That’s why a growing number of Democrats are publicly endorsing my campaign.”

Campaign manager Stacy Schuster: “As we approach Election Day, it’s clear that voters are unwilling to re-elect Bob Menendez, a corrupt, career politician who violated federal law and abused the power of his office for his donor friend, a convicted felon who blinded patients with lasers, scammed seniors, and stole $73 million from Medicare.  As the people of New Jersey continue to learn more about Marine veteran and job creator Bob Hugin’s track record of service and working together with others to get results, we’re confident they will support Bob Hugin on Election Day.”
