TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — None of the four men running in the Republican primary for the U.S. Senate is raising much money or has ever been elected to public office before.
The winner of Tuesday’s election will be a longshot when he faces incumbent U.S. Sen. Cory Booker in November. Booker is unopposed in the Democratic primary.
The Republican nominee will likely have a fundraising disadvantage as well as an historical one. New Jersey has not elected a Republican U.S. senator since 1972.
The candidates are Jeff Bell, Brain Goldberg, Richard Pezzullo and Murray Sabrin.
All but Goldberg have run for statewide office before.
