U.S. Rep. Albio Sires, who announced his retirement from Congress, says his successor should be a moderate. Sires has endorsed as his successor Rob Menendez, son of Sen. Bob Menendez, who held the same seat in Congress -- then configured as the 14th -- back in the ’90s. But there’s been a significant “not so fast” response to that idea, mostly from the progressive wing of the Hudson Democrats.
