Sen. Bob Menendez’s (D) federal corruption proceedings ended in a mistrial yesterday, which likely means the government will not proceed with their case against him because they clearly lack evidence to fully convince a jury that crimes had been committed. If they decline to move forward, it is likely the New Jersey Senate race will return to a normal progression. Sen. Menendez now won’t face an expulsion vote because of felony conviction, and he has maintained all along that he intends to seek re-election to a third term. Based upon yesterday’s occurrences, it appears that Sen. Menendez will return to a clear favorite’s role for re-election.
