Source: Roque to switch endorsement from Kyrillos to Menendez

A source close to Hudson County politics told PolitickerNJ.com that West New York Mayor Felix Roque today plans to formally withdraw his endorsement of state Sen. Joe Kyrillos (R-13) and instead back incumbent U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ).

In a show of defiance in February, Roque, a Democrat, endorsed Republican Kyrillos over backyard brand Menendez.

Last week, federal investigators descended on West New York, pumping people for answers in an alleged computer hacking case.

Roque said it was political payback from Menendez for his endorsement of Kyrillos, but today the renegade plans to throw his support to his fellow Cuban American and join the fold, the source said.
