When millionaire businessman Frank Lautenberg ran for the U.S. Senate in 1982, he savaged 72 year old Republican Congresswomen Millicent Fenwick, the pipe-smoking socialite and former Vogue Editor, questioning her age, stamina and fitness for the job. Lautenberg "retired" from the Senate in 2000 saying that he did not want to go though the "rigors" of another U.S. Senate campaign. That was then and this is now. Lautenberg, 84 years old and sadly out of touch with New Jersey, is seeking reelection. Lautenberg reminds me of Senator Clifford Case who lost re-nomination in 1978; a creature of New York and Washington who has lost touch with his home State and the 21 counties that make up that State. Case, like Lautenberg, has the nominal support of the Party organization but no one has real enthusiasm for his reelection. Although Lautenberg has a residence in Cliffside, New Jersey, he is a defacto resident of New York City where he maintains a palatial apartment on Park Ave. Gritty New Jersey no longer satisfies Park Avenue Frank. Now comes a hard-charging challenge from moderate Democrat Congressman Rob Andrews. Andrews must simply ask New Jersey voters which candidate has the energy to solve the problems of the next century. Andrews has dramatically called for six debates with the malapropism-oriented Lautenberg. Put your money on Andrews.
