Robertson won’t challenge Lautenberg

Former State Senator Norman Robertson says he has no intention of seeking the Republican nomination for United States Senator in 2008. A former Passaic County Freeholder, Robertson was elected to the Senate in 1997 after defeating five-term incumbent Joseph Bubba in the GOP primary. He lost his bid for a second term to Democrat Nia Gill in 2001 after redistricting made the 34th district virtually unwinnable for a Republican by adding East Orange and Montclair.
