|Andrews to challenge Lautenberg in primary

The Associated Press
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) Rep. Rob Andrews has decided to challenge Frank Lautenberg for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate.
Democratic Party leader Joe Cryan says Andrews told party leaders of his intentions Wednesday, 48 hours after his conspicuous absence from Lautenberg's re-election announcement in Trenton.
State and national party officials failed to dissuade the eight-term congressman from challenging Lautenberg, who is 84 years old.
Cryan says Andrews' run will be divisive to the party.
The 50-year-old Andrews, who represents South Jersey, is clearly an underdog.
Lautenberg has amassed more than $4 million for the campaign and lined up the support from the state's most influential Democrats, including Gov. Jon Corzine.
