Sen. Bob Menendez survived a tougher than expected re-election campaign in New Jersey in the wake of a corruption trial that threatened to upend the Democrat’s political future.

Networks called the race for Mr. Menendez about 40 minutes after the polls closed.

Mr. Menendez is now poised to serve out a third six-year term.
