Is Menendez Leaning Towards a No Vote on Alito?
New Jersey's new Senator, Democrat Robert Menendez, says he has reservations about voting for Supreme Court nominee, Samuel Alito. He met with Alito, a fellow New Jerseyan, for about 45 minutes on Capitol Hill today.Not a good start to your Senate career Mr. Menendez. There’s more to New Jersey than Hudson County and left-wing Democrats. The voters in the Garden State will not remember you kindly in the voting booth if you vote against a highly qualified federal judge from your own state.
Menendez says the two spent the bulk of the time talking about the landmark abortion case, Roe v. Wade. He says he's concerned that Judge Alito won't say whether Roe is settled law.
New Jersey's other Senator, Democrat Frank Lautenberg, has not said how he would vote.
