ATLANTIC CITY – Comfortably roaming the hallways of the Borgata: former U.S. Senator Bob Torricelli (D-NJ).
Giving a speech at the podium before throngs of hundreds: U.S. Rep. Donald Norcross (D-1).
Ready to put down $20 million in necessary to put himself in contention for a U.S. Senate seat, if one becomes available, Torricelli turned up at the party down here in casual, friendly form.
Amid rumors of statewide possibilities in the future, Norcross wouldn’t indulge any discussions about a U.S. Senate run next year. He dismissed statewide questions, talking up embattled U.S. Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ), referring to himself as an “apprentice,” and sticking to detail-orienting pivots to minimum wage.
