N.J. Democratic Sen Torricelli drops reelection bid
New Jersey Democratic Sen. Robert Torricelli quit his bid for re-election on Monday amid an onslaught of corruption allegations and a drastic drop in his poll numbers.
Yet only a week ago, AP was reporting the race as a statistical dead heat. Today he resigns because he’s down 13 points. Talk about a hemmoraging campaign. But why quit so close to the end when you know it will torpedo your partys chance to hold an crucial seat? I’m guessing “smoking gun” evidence was about to be released linking him to more corruption.
This could cost the Democrats the Senate. My own opinion? Good riddance to a corrupt Senator.
