[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=04-File Tape; ]

The justices are refusing to be drawn into the fight... which means the state supreme court's decision to allow the switch will stand. Democrats announced last week that former senator Frank Lautenberg would be replacing Robert Torricelli on the ballot.
Torricelli had been slipping in the polls since a recent ethics controversy. He left the race last week saying he didn't want to risk costing the Democrats control of the Senate. Republicans argue the move was illegal and unconstitutional because of the late date of the change. The high court didn't give any reasons for rejecting the appeal.

President Bush is expected to get involved in the longshoremen strike that closed more than two dozen ports on the West Coast.

The administration is said to be worried that the strike could hamper an already struggling economy. Bush is said to be creating a board of inquiry under the Taft-Hartley Act - and he could mandate an 80-day cooling off period. 10-thousand longshoremen were locked out by shippers a week ago who were demanding an extension of a contract that expired July first. The strike is costing the economy as much as two billion dollars a day - as un-shipped goods pile up in the nation's warehouses.
