A Corzine win makes Menendez safe safe safe

A win by Jon Corzine will make Democrat Robert Menendez one of the safest incumbents in the United States Senate when he seeks re-election in 2012. Republicans have not won a U.S. Senate seat in New Jersey since 1972 and have had no statewide victories since 1997, and if the GOP can’t take out a governor with upside-down approval ratings, it’s unlikely that they will be seriously competitive against Menendez in a presidential year. Menendez, who has taken a personal interest in Corzine’s Hudson County campaign, will appear with Jon Stewart on the Daily Show tonight to plug his new book.
