Senator Lautenberg will not seek reelection

As I've previously indicated would be likely, Senator Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey has decided not to seek reelection in 2014. Lautenberg, who will be 90 years old during the campaign, will let younger candidates run for his seat.

Corey Booker, the popular Mayor of Newark, NJ, has already announced that he would run for Lautenberg's seat. Representative Frank Pallone had also privately indicated that he would likely run if Lautenberg chose to step down, though he has not yet made it official.
