New Brunswick, NJ – The Menendez for Senate Campaign today released the following statement in reaction to a new Stockton Poll released today:
“We knew this would be a competitive race given the millions greedy drug company CEO Bob Hugin spent on TV he made off the backs of cancer victims and their families, but we are confident Senator Menendez will prevail on Election Day. No one has fought harder and longer and delivered more for New Jersey than Bob Menendez. The energy and enthusiasm for Bob Menendez is palpable where ever he goes around the state. Democrats are energized and understand what’s at stake. His message is getting out there and people are responding. At the end of the day, New Jerseyans will choose a proven fighter who will stand up to Trump’s dangerous policies, not a Trump, Christie Republican like Bob Hugin who made a fortune ripping off cancer patients and will never have our back and will just be another vote for Trump’s dangerous policies.
“The Stockton Poll historically underestimates Democratic performance; this is no different. At the same time in the race in 2016 and 2014, they undercut Hillary Clinton’s statewide performance by nine points and Cory Booker’s by seven, respectively, as each won by double-digit margins. In 2012, Stockton had Senator Menendez with 52%, only to wind up with 59% en route to a 20-point victory. If history holds, Bob Menendez beats greedy drug company CEO Bob Hugin on Nov. 6. Against a self-funded multimillionaire with virtually unlimited resources, we’d take that any day.”
