Andrews says he’ll consider primary challenge against Lautenberg

U.S. Rep. Rob Andrews’ spokesman Bill Caruso issued the following statement today after the congressman did not appear at the Trenton Marriot in support of U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg:

“Over the last few days, Congressman Andrews has been approached by many leaders of the Democratic Party who have urged him to step forward and run for the Senate because they think that 2008 is a year where voters are seeking a change in government. Because he respects the judgment of these leaders, he is carefully considering how to best to serve New Jersey and the country.”
