He co-founded the successful Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (ADP) and was its chairman and CEO.

U.S. Senator

In 1982 he received the Democratic nomination for a US Senate seat from New Jersey for that year's election after spending a considerable sum of his own money. The seat had been occupied by Democrat Harrison Williams who resigned on March 11, 1982 after being implicated in the Abscam scandal. After Williams' resignation, Republican Governor Thomas Kean appointed Republican Nicholas F. Brady to the seat. Brady served in the Senate through the primary and general elections but did not run for the seat himself.

Lautenberg won the election, defeating popular Republican congresswoman Millicent Fenwick by 52% to 48%. Ironically, he raised Fenwick's advanced age as a campaign issue, but would later run for office at an even older age. Brady, who had just a few days left in his appointed term, resigned on December 27, 1982, allowing Lautenberg to take office several days before the traditional swearing-in of senators, which gave him an edge in seniority over the other freshmen senators.

In 1988, Lautenberg was opposed by Republican Wall Street executive and former college football star Pete Dawkins, who won the 1958 Heisman Trophy for the Army Black Knights. After trailing in early polls, the Lautenberg campaign, headed by Democratic consultant James Carville, ran an aggressive advertising campaign enumerating Lautenberg's legislative accomplishments and questioning whether Dawkins' candidacy was intended solely as a stepping stone to the presidency, as well as his lack of roots in New Jersey. Lautenberg ultimately came from behind to win reelection by a 54% to 46% margin.  Republican holds  Republican pickups  Democratic holds  Democratic pickups The U.S. Senate election, 1988 was an election for the United States Senate in which, in spite of the Republican victory by George Herbert Walker Bush in the presidential election, the Republicans had a net loss of one seat in the...

2002 election

Lautenberg unexpectedly returned to politics in 2002, when the other New Jersey senator, Democrat Robert Torricelli, withdrew his candidacy for reelection, because of corruption charges. It was rumored, however, that Lautenberg was the second choice to run, the first choice being former Senator Bill Bradley, who turned it down.  Republican hold  Republican pickup  Democratic hold  Democratic pickup The U.S. Senate election, 2002 was a fiercely-contested race that resulted in a victory for the Republican Party, which gained two seats and thus a narrow majority from the Democratic Party in the United States Senate. ...

The selection of Lautenberg came with some irony, as there had been notoriously bad blood between Lautenberg and Torricelli when the two had served together in the Senate.[2]


The New Jersey Republican Party challenged the replacement of Torricelli's name on the ballot with Lautenberg's, arguing that it came too late according to state election laws. The ballot name change was unanimously upheld by the New Jersey Supreme Court[3], and the U.S. Supreme Court declined to take up the case. Lautenberg won the election, defeating his Republican challenger, businessman Doug Forrester, by 54% to 44%.

Lautenberg is considered to be one of the Senate's most liberal members. He is pro-choice, supports gun control, has introduced many bills increasing penalties for carjacking and car theft, and has criticized the Bush administration on national security issues. He has been very involved in various anti-smoking legislation, anti-alcohol legislation as well as airline safety legislation, and is probably best known for being involved with, and authoring some of, the legislation that banned smoking from most commercial airline flights. He also is known for authoring the Ryan White Care Act, which provides services to AIDS patients.

Upon his return to the Senate, Lautenberg was the first U.S. senator to introduce legislation calling for homeland security funds to be distributed solely on the basis of risk and vulnerability.


In 2005, he became a leading voice within the Senate in calling for an investigation into the Bush administration payment of columnists.[4] The Bush administration payment of columnists refers to the payment of public funds to right-wing media commentators by several U.S. executive departments under Cabinet officials to promote various policies of U.S. President George W. Bushs administration. ...


When Jon Corzine resigned from the Senate to become Governor of New Jersey, Lautenberg became the Senior Senator, again, in 2006. This also makes him the only person to have been both the junior and senior senator from New Jersey twice. Jon Stevens Corzine (born January 1, 1947) is the Governor of New Jersey. ...

In 2007, Lautenberg proposed the Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2007, designed to close loopholes that permit weapons purchases by persons that the executive branch has classified as "dangerous terrorists".


On June 21st, 2007, Lautenberg passed Clifford Case for the most votes on the Senate floor of any United States Senator in New Jersey history. Clifford P. Case (1904-1982) Clifford Phillip Case (16 April 1904 in Franklin Park, New Jersey – 5 March 1982 in Washington, DC) was an American lawyer political figure, serving in the U.S. House of Representatives (1945–1953) and United States Senate (1955–1979) as a Republican from the State...

The 81-year-old Lautenberg, was a U.S. Senator from 1983 to 2001, retired briefly, and began serving again in 2003 when New Jersey Senator Robert Torricelli withdrew his candidacy for reelection (in 2002) because of corruption charges and Lautenberg was drafted to take his place.
Lautenberg was the Senator who kept pushing until an Attorney General's investigation was started into the payments made by the Bush Education Department to Williams.
Lautenberg called the Bush administration on the lack of focus in catching Osama bin Laden after CIA Chief Porter Goss claimed in June that he had an "excellent idea" where bin Laden was hiding.
