Rob Andrews wants to render Frank Lautenberg’s county line advantage obsolete.
Andrews announced today that he’s filing suit against 13 mostly northern county clerks to seek a “fair and open Democratic primary” that requires county clerks give “fair and equal” ballot position to both U.S. Senate candidates at the State Superior Court.
