2018 Senate Election

Senator Robert Menendez

Robert Menendez is seeking a third term representing New Jersey. Having previously served 13 years in the House of Representatives, Menendez easily won election to the Senate in 2006 and 2012. In 2015, Menendez was indicted by the Justice Department for bribery and fraud. The judge declared a mistrial in November 2017 and the Justice Department dropped the charges two months later. Still, Menendez comfortably won the New Jersey Democratic primary. Given the state’s blue streak, he will likely be reelected in November.
