The Long Branch primary

It won’t have too much impact on the actual U.S. Senate primary results, but it will be interesting to watch how Democrats in Long Branch vote on June 3. Long Branch’s two leading politicians, Rep. Frank Pallone and Mayor Adam Schneider, are on different sides of the Senate race: Pallone is backing Frank Lautenberg and Schneider endorsed Rob Andrews yesterday. There was a time when Pallone and Schneider were close personal friends and political allies, but in recent years their relationship has become quite contemptuous.
