Abstract

On paper, New Jersey should be a safe seat for the Democratic Party in this year’s US Senate elections. The incumbent, Bob Menendez, won his two previous elections handily, and the state has not elected a Republican US Senator since the days of Richard Nixon. But, writes Ashley Koning, Menendez has been hurt by a 2017 federal corruption case which ended in a mistrial as well as a newcomer Republican challenger who has been running as a moderate.
