Newark, N.J. (AP) -- Democratic U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey will kick off his re-election bid for a third term Wednesday, just two months after federal prosecutors dropped corruption charges against him.

The 64-year-old Democrat announced Tuesday will hold events in his hometown of Union City, where he was once mayor, and in southern New Jersey. He'll be joined by other top Democrats including fellow Sen. Cory Booker and Gov. Phil Murphy.
