If we had term limits, he would have already been replaced with a younger liberal-Democrat by now because of the kinds of voters in NJ.

Originally state legislatures appointed Senaors.

If we had that, the Democratic NJ legislature would appoint a Democrat.

The real change is to educate the low information voters so they do not vote for liberal Democrats.

Ok, three words, repeal the 17th.

Frank Lautenberg, the last World War II veteran serving in the United States Senate, died of natural causes this morning at the age of 89:

Frank R. Lautenberg, who rose from a poor Paterson boyhood to become a multimillionaire businessman and New Jersey’s longest-serving U.S. senator, died Monday at 89 of viral pneumonia, his office said. The oldest member of the Senate, Lautenberg had struggled with health problems since late last year, when he missed several weeks of votes because of what he said was flu and bronchitis.
