Join News Views for a Live Discussion on Senator Menendez’ press conference.

Sen. Bob Menendez will deliver remarks from Union City, New Jersey, days after he and his wife were indicted on bribery charges.

The Democratic senator was accused of secretly aiding the authoritarian government of Egypt and trying to thwart the criminal prosecution of a friend in exchange for gold bars and cash.

Menendez was forced to relinquish his chairmanship of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee but said he would not resign from Congress, though New Jersey’s governor, a fellow Democrat, and other Democrats in the state’s congressional delegation said he should.

Who should be the next senator from California?
