This year, there are four Democrats running in next week's U.S. Senate primary to fill the remainder of the late Senator Frank Lautenberg's term. Of course, the best known is Newark Mayor Cory Booker. But there are three other excellent candidates. Two are congressmen - Rush Holt and Frank Pallone. The other is the Speaker of the New Jersey General Assembly, Sheila Oliver.

In 1988, Marlene Howard threw her weight behind 37-year-old Frank Pallone for the U.S. House seat that her husband, James J. Howard, had held when he died.
"Right out of college, he helped us. He was a hard worker. He used to register voters for my late husband, and he campaigned for us," Marlene Howard, 82, of Spring Lake Heights, recalled Friday.
Since Pallone was elected that year, Howard said, he has "always continued everything Jim stood for."

If we are to believe the pundits and pollsters, New Jersey might just as well skip the special U.S. Senate election and start polishing up the late Frank Lautenberg’s old seat for Newark Mayor Cory Booker.
Booker is indeed the heavy favorite. But he’s not the best choice, not in the Democratic primary on Aug. 13. Our endorsement goes to Rep. Frank Pallone, who has earned the nod with a long and distinguished legislative career that has yielded many benefits for New Jersey, and especially his 6th Congressional District, which stretches from Jersey Shore towns all the way up to Middlesex County.
