The Democratic U.S. Senate candidates sparred tonight on NJN, where Sen. Frank Lautenberg hit Rep. Rob Andrews on a broken promise, Rep. Rob Andrews hit Lautenberg for hypocrisy regarding his attacks on opponent Millicent Fenwick's age in 1982, and Morristown Mayor Donald Cresitello just wanted to move on.
It was the final debate between the candidates before Tuesday's primary. Earlier today, ABC's Philadelphia affiliate aired a debate between Andrews and Cresitello, without Lautenberg, who turned it down.
After Lautenberg bemoaned Andrews's joint pledge with the rest of the state's Congressional delegation not to run a primary against Lautenberg, Cresitello said he was tired of hearing the story.Read More >

NEWARK - Facing an uprising in the South Ward by a strange alliance of Mayor Cory Booker allies and backers of U.S. Senate candidate Rob Andrews, U.S. Rep. Donald Payne (D-10) continues to condemn Andrews as one of the architects of the Iraq War resolution.
"As we see in this latest book that Bush's media person (former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan) put out, we knew it was a flawed policy," said Payne, who voted against the 2002 authorization to go to war.
In a confusing political battle here, Booker is allied with Payne in their mutual endorsement of U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), even as the mayor's South Ward surrogates are allied with Andrews as part of Booker's local fight against Payne for county committee seats.Read More >
