Sanders: It's "Menendez's decision" whether to resign if convicted
"It's Menendez's decision" on whether he resigns if he is convicted, Sen. Bernie Sanders said on CNN's State of the Union Sunday. A new USA Today/Suffolk University poll shows that 84% of New Jersey residents would want Sen. Bob Menendez to resign if convicted. If the senator resigns, Gov. Chris Christie is likely to appoint a Republican to take his place and tip the senate majority even more toward the GOP.
