Senator Bob Menendez to Run For 3rd Term
SEN. BOB MENENDEZ IS TRYING TO MAKE A POLITICAL COMEBACK
(CNN) – Senator Bob Menendez is making a political comeback.
Two months after corruption charges were dropped against him, the New Jersey Democrat has announced a re-election bid.
Federal prosecutors accused Menendez of abusing his office to help a doctor friend and political benefactor.
However, jurors were unable to reach a verdict…. and the department of justice eventually dropped the case.
If he wins the democratic nomination, Menendez is likely to face off against republican Bob Hugin.
