Andrews and Lautenberg: A Tale of Two Campaigns

Thus far in the N.J. U.S. Democratic senate campaign, Congressman Rob Andrews has repeatedly put himself in the public eye and is now going to be hosting a series of town forums across the state, according to the Press of Atlantic City. Andrews has also challenged incumbent Frank Lautenberg to a series of debates, yet Lautenberg has yet to accept any of them; in fact, The Star-Ledger has reported that Lautenberg may not accept any public debates because of concerns over the senator's age and his poor speaking abilities.

The N.J. senate race thus far has been one where Andrews has constantly put himself up for scrutiny in the public eye -- what democratic debate should entail -- while Lautenberg has refused public appearances and has merely posted negative press releases on Andrews and had surrogates to the actual work for him. Talk about a contrast.
