Rep. Rob Menendez has won the Democratic nomination for the U.S. House in New Jersey's 8th Congressional District.
Menendez, son of Sen. Bob Menendez, defeated Hoboken Mayor Ravi Bhalla and Kyle Jasey for the nomination.
Menendez said Bhalla’s heavy focus on his father, who is currently on trial in a federal bribery case, showed he was afraid to take on the congressman directly.
Menendez, an attorney and former Port Authority of New York and New Jersey commissioner, first won election in northern New Jersey’s 8th District in 2022, succeeding Albio Sires.
He has been a lonely voice of support for his father amid his legal woes.
Republican Anthony Valdes ran uncontested.
The 8th District includes parts of Elizabeth, Jersey City and Newark.
