Six years after endorsing Frank Lautenberg for the United States Senate, The Press of Atlantic City has endorsed the Republican challenger, Dick Zimmer.
“Zimmer pledged not to make Lautenberg’s age an issue in the campaign and has kept that pledge. But Lautenberg himself has made his age an issue by employing a campaign strategy clearly designed to limit face-to-face contact with his opponent and the public,” the editorial said. “Whether that’s because of age or arrogance, it is an unacceptable way to campaign in the 21st century.’
Zimmer also won the backing of the Gloucester County Times.
The Press of Atlantic City endorsed U.S. Rep. Frank LoBiondo for re-election on Tuesday.
