|Description||After months of answering questions about Senator Robert G. Torricelli's ethics and a week fending off legal challenges to prevent Frank R. Lautenberg from replacing him on the ballot, Democrats finally found themselves in a position today to play offense in New Jersey's United States Senate race. |
Mr. Lautenberg clearly relished the opportunity, accusing his Republican opponent, Douglas R. Forrester, of using "character assassination" and legal obfuscation to distract voters from his conservative positions on issues like environmental protection, abortion rights and privatization of Social Security.
