Kyrillos, of Monmouth County, easily defeated three little-known challengers Tuesday. Menendez faced no opposition for his party’s nomination for a second six-year term in the U.S. Senate.

Kyrillos began his general election campaign by calling Menendez a “mediocre senator” and saying New Jersey residents “deserve much better.”

Menendez says he will continue to focus his efforts on trying to help the middle class. The senator, who was unopposed, wished Kyrillos well and called for the two to discuss their differences “in an honorable way.”

The 58-year-old Menendez has a big head start in fundraising. But the 52-year-old Kyrillos could benefit from out-of-state GOP money if he can keep the race close through the summer.
