Bob Menendez (D) is a U.S. Senator from the State of New Jersey. He was appointed to this seat after his predecessor, Jon Corzine was elected Governor. Before that he had represented the 13th Congressional District.



The 13th District comprises most of Hudson county and parts of Essex, Union and Middlesex counties. West New York, Weehawken, Hoboken, Guttenberg, Harrison, East Newark, Elizabeth and Perth Amboy are located in this district, as are downtown and waterfront Jersey City. The district also encompasses Port Newark/Elizabeth Marine Terminal, the East Coast's busiest commercial port and container ship facility.

Menendez is the former mayor of Union City, NJ, home to the largest concentration of Cuban-Americans outside of Miami.
