NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - Election Day is November 6 and New Jerseyans may end up picking a new U.S. Senator or sticking with the one they have right now.

Democratic incumbent U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez is being challenged by Republican St. Sen. Joe Kyrillos.

Menendez has served in the U.S. Senate since 2006 and served in the U.S. House of Representatives before that. Kyrillos has served in the New Jersey State Senate since 1992. Prior to that, he served in the State Assembly.
