Raise your hands if you remember Harrison Williams. Former senator from New Jersey, popular at home, caught in Abscam, along with a boatload of Philadelphia politicians. (No, this blog entry isn't an obit, seeing as how late it is.) Anyway, when he resigned as a result of Abscam, he was replaced by GOP-governor-appointed Millicent Fenwick. The next election, which was in the regular year, was won by Frank Lautenberg.

The point? Lautenberg saved the Democratic party's bacon in New Jersey 20 years ago. And now history repeats itself.
