    Frank wins the primary because Booker supporters are overconfident and stay home. Plus Frank has the support of Patrick Kennedy, the Lautenberg clan, the Asbury Park Mess, and MMM. However, Frank loses to Steve Lonegan because Vic Scudiery hates Frank so much he organizes and finances “Democrats For Lonegan”. People will get confused and vote for Lonegan because they think he is a Democrat. The real winner this election – Vic Scudiery.
