(InsiderNJ) End Citizens United // Let America Vote (ECU // LAV) President Tiffany Muller
issued the following statement on reports that disgraced Senator Bob Menendez is considering a run as an independent for the New Jersey Senate race:

“The only thing less popular in New Jersey than Senator Menendez are the Governor’s new toll hikes. But while Senator Menendez has no path to win either as a Democrat or an independent, there is a real chance he could play spoiler in November if Democrats nominate a weak candidate. With the Senate majority at stake, we cannot take chances on untested and unproven candidates.

“Congressman Andy Kim won tough races in a tough district and his people-powered campaign is appealing most to both Democrats and independent voters—and he can win no matter who’s on the ballot in November. New Jerseyans are sick of corrupt machine politics and ready for new leaders who will put their voices ahead of the special interests.”
