      ..want to protect his seat for Democrats. - (April)
      It's true he'll be 90 in 2014 but Lautenberg - (sept.) says:

      ..he’s healthy and has more work to do. But it’s not preventing speculation over possible challengers in a Democratic primary. Newark mayor Cory Booker’s name comes up frequently. Lautenberg recently criticized Booker for being AWOL at an event in Newark, saying “I was disappointed that he couldn’t be standing there with me as we provided funds for a new community health center in Newark, very important.” When Chief Political Correspondent Michael Aron asked if he was saying Booker is an absentee mayor, Lautenberg replied “No, you just said it.”

      Frank Lautenberg says he loves being a U.S. Senator. Whether the long knives are out for him, it’s still too early to say
      So it sounds like he's not yet ready to step down
