There are two Bobs running for a Senate seat in New Jersey today.
Incumbent Sen. Robert Menendez, a Democrat, is warding off a challenge from Republican Bob Hugin.
A RealClearPolitics average of polls shows Menendez leading the race by about 10 points.
That didn’t stop President Trump from trying to give Hugin a last-minute boost on Twitter midway through Election Day.
“Bob Hugin, successful all of his life, would be a Great Senator from New Jersey. He has my complete and total Endorsement!” Trump tweeted early Tuesday afternoon.
“Get out and Vote for Bob,” he added.
Menendez decided to capitalize on the unintentional endorsement at the end of Trump’s tweet.
“Thank you,” he replied to the president.
