Looks like Pallone can be crossed off the list

One sign that the next United States Senator from New Jersey will not be Frank Pallone: Governor-elect Jon Corzine has not spoken to Pallone since late last week, when the Monmouth County Congressman got the impression that Bob Menendez was the leading candidate. Another sign: the Asbury Park Press, which had two horses in the race (Pallone and Rush Holt both represent parts of Monmouth counties) endorsed Bill Bradley for the seat. Of the newspapers that endorsed in the 2005 Senate race, only the APP declined to back their local Congressmen. The Courier-Post and Philadelphia Inquirer supported Rob Andrews, and the Trenton Times endorsed Holt.
