Trenton, NJ – NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt released the following statement regarding the news of Senator Bob Menendez’s campaign kick-off:

“New Jersey’s over 5 million registered voters will finally have a chance to render their verdict on Senator Bob Menendez’s record,” said Chairman Steinhardt. “He’s a career politician who has spent more time staying one step ahead of the law than he has in step with his New Jersey constituents. We need a U.S. Senator who will use his influence to change New Jersey’s abysmal distinction as the 50th State out of 50 for sending more federal tax dollars out of State than it gets back in federal benefits, rather than using that influence to help his friends and donors bilk taxpayers out of hundreds of millions of dollars in Medicare funds.”

Chairman Steinhardt added, “Public polling suggests that a jury of Senator Menendez’s constituents aren’t so sure about his close relationship and dealing with his self-proclaimed best friend and convicted felon Solomon Melgen. The man who showered Menendez with vacations, gifts and campaign contributions defrauded seniors and will likely spend the rest of his life in prison for it, yet Menendez still stands by his side. A recent Rutgers poll showed a majority of New Jersey wanted a new Senator and a recent Quinnipiac poll showed Menendez’s favorability rating is upside down among independent voters in the state. We have a real shot at putting a qualified Republican in that Senate seat.”
