Menendez Losing Lead

Senator Bob Menendez, finishing up Jon Corzine's term, is going to be in a closely contested election this fall with Tom Kean Jr., the son of the former govenor of New Jersey. This election will likely come right down to the wire with an event right around election time causing undecided voters to go one way or the other.

I think that this race is not going to end well for democrats. Menendez, a shady politician at best, has not impressed potential voters in this battle ground state. Tom Kean Jr. on the other hand, has and will benefit greatly from the name of his father in older voters of the state who remember the good days of New Jersey before all the corruption and scandals. Kean Jr. will likely cash in on a lot of independent voters who are swayed because of the name recgonition, something the democrats cannot afford to happen. Come November, look for Tom Kean Jr. to be Senator Tom Kean Jr.
