U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez threw his support behind incumbent Sen. Ray Lesniak and Assembly Representatives Joe Cryan and Annette Quijano, who are all up for re-election in the 20th District.
Menendez recently cut a radio spot in both English and Spanish backing the trio’s campaign. Both Cryan and Quijano are facing tough primary challenges next month.
Menendez is up for re-election in 2012. No opponent has yet emerged in the race, but Republicans are gunning for the seat and several names have surfaced as potential challengers.
