  •  opposition from Home Senators would be big (4.00)
    Menendez is running for his Senate seat in November.

    Yesterday, his republican challenger Tom Kean, Jr. (son of former Gov.) held a press conference in Alito's home town supporting him. Kean is a moderate to liberal republican (liberal by national standards, moderate by NJ standards), and initial polls suggest a tight race.

    Menendez apparently has not taken a position yet.

    I called his office to suggest that Alito filibuster would be a high profile excellent contrast issue with Kean in November, and, if he could come out in opposition with Lautenberg it would send message nationally that this Jersey homeboy is bad news.
