According to the PolitickerNJ, incumbent U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg is in a statistical dead heat with former Rep. Dick Zimmer. I think the GOP did well for itself selecting Mr. Zimmer as a candidate. Meanwhile, I am sure that Mr. Lautenberg, a great senator for this state for many years, is going to be on the Campaign Trail and making a case for why he should go back to Washington D.C.
My opinion: Both these guys are very distinguished lawmakers. It's going to be a good race. The Politicker has the story. Click on the headline and go there.
