DOWN THE STRETCH: LAUTENBERG—THE ONCE AND FUTURE SENATOR?
New Jerseyans appear to be ready to elect three-term Senator Frank Lautenberg to the seat now held by retiring U.S. Senator Robert Torricelli. Lautenberg holds a commanding 52 to 40 percent lead over Republican Douglas Forrester among likely voters in the latest Star-Ledger/Eagleton-Rutgers Poll. Just 6 percent remain undecided with the election a few days away, although another 13 percent say they could change their mind before voting. Two percent say they plan to vote for some other candidate.
