While disgraced Senator Bob Menendez’s bribery trial ended in a hung jury, New Jersey voters have made up their mind that it’s time for Menendez to go.
A new Rutgers-Eagleton poll released today finds that just 26% of New Jerseyans think Menendez should be reelected if he runs for another term. Even more worrying for the Senator, who was tried on federal charges of bribery, conspiracy, fraud and other corruption related charges, 49% think Menendez should resign from the Senate. It’s clear that Menendez has lost the trust of New Jersey voters and will have a steep hill to climb if he opts to run for another term.
“Disgraced Senator Bob Menendez has embarrassed New Jersey for too long, and it’s clear Garden State voters are ready to move on,” said NRSC Spokesman Bob Salera. “If Menendez decides to run for reelection, he will be rejected by New Jersey voters who are sick and tired of his blatant corruption.”
