Could Low-Turnout Spell Disaster for Lautenberg?

Americans who believe in the Second Amendment and prize freedom have no friend in Frank Lautenberg, Democratic U.S. Senator from New Jersey. Today may be a day that could surprise many and leave those Americans with smiles on their faces.

Lautenberg is facing a primary challenge today from Rep. Rob Andrews, who is 34 years his junior. Many Democrats and Republicans alike have questioned Lautenberg's vitality and ability to withstand the rigors of life as a U.S. Senator.

Early reports are of low turnout, which often hurts incumbents who win so many races on name recognition alone. Could we see the end of Lautenberg's political career today?

Of course, one has to wonder which Democrat the Republicans want to challenge in November. Lautenberg is the incumbent and has all of the advantages that go along with that, but he is also vulnerable on the issue of age and votes that don't sit well with New Jersey's working class.
