Former Sen. Bob Torricelli (D), who himself was forced to leave office in 2002 over a questionable campaign finance issue, had said he was interested in attempting a political comeback for his former position. With Sen. Bob Menendez’s (D) federal corruption proceedings now ending in a mistrial, Mr. Torricelli said over the weekend that he will not become a candidate next year. Assuming the government does not pursue further legal proceedings against Mr. Menendez, the Senator will be in strong position to win a third term.
