I've seen lots of reports this morning that there are four D
Senators who're on the shite list for 2018. So far, the only R - loser Heller on my state - are on the hot seat and he's being challenged by a conservative.

What result to do you expect?
I expect the outcome to be what the outcome is. Given that it's New Jersey I'd be surprised if a Republican that you wouldn't consider a RINO replaces him even though they have a Republican Governor.

A lot of rumors about Menendez involved in child sex rings and drug cartels

Yes he has been given the choice of resignation or impeachment by the Ds.
You CANNOT impeach a Senator.
You may be right but the D senate caucus is threatening to do so and the supremes almost never stick their nose into congressional self government.
The Senate can expel him, but they cannot impeach him.

The word used was impeach, I said you may be right and apparently you were but I am neither the fact-checker for the report nor the speech writer for the senator.

I thought he was getting the heave-ho because of his favor trading, sweetheart deals and dubious accounting practices.

If Democrats are involved, idiocy will soon follow!
As in this will likely lead to skinny repeal? About a 60% chance is my guess given that reelection of an R senator from NJ is about nil.

You CANNOT impeach a Senator.

So? I stated they could not be impeached, which is still 100% correct!

The only way you will get a Republican Senator out of a Menendez resignation is by an appointment from Christie.
