NJGOP Chairman Steinhardt Statement On Menendez Corruption Trial

Trenton, NJ – NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt released the following statement regarding Senator Menendez avoiding a re-trial on federal corruption charges:

“Narrowly avoiding a re-trial on federal corruption charges doesn’t mean Senator Menendez is worthy of reelection. New Jersey deserves better than a career politician who accepted lavish, tropical vacations and private jets courtesy of a major campaign donor, and then tried to hide those perks from the public. Senator Menendez’s real judge and jury will be voters who have already indicated they overwhelmingly find his behavior unacceptable. The burden of proof is back on Senator Menendez’s shoulders and New Jersey’s electorate will decide if he’s worthy of their vote in November.”
