    FILE - In this Thursday, Nov. 2, 2006 file photograph, Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., third from right, raises arms with Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., second from right, New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, right, Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., second from left, during a campaign rally for Menendez in Hoboken, N.J. Also in the group are Menendez' son, Rob, third from left, and his daughter, Alicia, left. Menendez is running against state Sen. Tom Kean Jr, for U.S. Senate from New Jersey. In January 2013, the Sen. Menendez’s role in Washington grew as he became chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee and was a major player in a bipartisan Senate plan to overhaul the nation’s immigration laws. At the same time, he has been in the familiar situation of fending off charges of impropriety. He’s repaid a donor for travel in a private jet and tried to shoot down stories that he’s patronized prostitutes in the Dominican Republic. (AP Photo/Mike Derer, File)
