EDISON - As the summer ends, the fall political campaign season began today.

Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez and Republican challenger state Sen. Joe Kryilos campaigned at a street fair in Rutherford. Both Kryillos and Menendez said their campaigns will intensify as voters start to pay more attention.

Menendez, of Hudson County, is running for a second term. Kyrillos has served in the state legislature for 24 years.

Like the presidential campaign, the economy and jobs are expected to play a major role in the U.S. Senate race.
