NJ Senate Candidates give Joe bipartisan support

posted October 19th

How's this for bipartisanship?

This afternoon The Empire Zone reports that Democratic New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez and his Republican opponent Tom Kean Jr. both endorsed expressed support of Joe's independent candidacy yesterday at a public forum.

[B]oth candidates were asked about Lieberman’s re-election bid. Mr. Mendenez, who appeared first, said he supports Mr. Lieberman’s run as an independent candidate. “I wish him well,” he said, “and hope he returns.”

He then warned the crowd that Mr. Kean, who was to appear second, would try to tell the crowd that Mr. Menendez supports Mr. Lamont.

About 40 minutes later, when Mr. Kean was asked about Senator Lieberman, he said, “I think he is the right individual and I look forward to serving with him.” After a pause, he added, “My opponent, by the way, supports Ned Lamont.”

Fr here:

"....asked Menendez why he was putting party loyalty ahead of a good candidate by backing Lamont. Menendez became indignant and he told the crowd of hundreds the premise of the question was dead wrong. He called Lieberman a "tremendous Senator," and said, "We wish him well. We hope he returns."
But after the event, safely away from the hundreds of audience members, Menendez had a different response when a reporter asked if he was endorsing Lieberman. No, he said, he is "officially" supporting Lamont, the party nominee."

Hey Eric Went-Blank, go look for other causes for bipartisanship like selling out to the highest bidder for any other causes like Medicare, Big OIL, BIG Pharma, IRAQ etc.
