Hugin revives prostitution allegations against Sen. Menendez in NJ Senate race

New Jersey hasn't elected a Republican to the Senate in 46 years. Robert Menendez from an unexpectedly spirited Republican challenge for what was supposed to be a safe seat.

Bob Menendez in the final days of the closer-than-expected New Jersey Senate race, reviving salacious allegations that the senator had sex with underage prostitutes during past trips to the Dominican Republic.

For the New Jersey senator, the race represents the latest in a series of dramatic fights for his political life.

Advertising in Garden State races is no small commitment. But campaign spokesman Steve Sandberg called the ad a "disgraceful act" in a statement to the Star-Ledger in New Jersey. The real question is, was former campaign manager Robby Mook the one driving the auto?

"I do think there will be some frustration. that they did toss that money there if they lose another competitive state by a hair's breadth". A mistrial was declared previous year after the jury failed to reach a verdict in that case.

Bomb kills Afghan election candidate, wounds 7
Qahraman had spearheaded the formation of Sangorian, a secret militia trained by Afghan intelligence to infiltrate the Taliban. Last week, 22 people died in an explosion at an election rally for a woman candidate in the northeastern province of Takhar.

Senate Majority PAC, which is controlled by allies of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), will use the cash to air a statewide ad attacking Menendez's opponent, former pharmaceutical executive Bob Hugin, as an ally of President Donald Trump in a state where the president is deeply unpopular.

However, Menendez's Senate colleagues voted in April to admonish him for trading gifts for favors with a Florida eye doctor who bilked the federal government out of almost $9 million.

Hugin has aired multiple ads attacking Menendez over the charges, frequently noting that he was indicted by "Obama's Justice Department".

Recent public polls have found Menendez in the lead, but vary about how comfortable that lead is, with some showing Hugin within striking distance.
