The death of Frank Lautenberg this week forced Governor Chris Christie into political maneuvering. He decided to call a special October election for the longtime Senator’s seat, after an August primary.
Today, Christie started the process by selecting State Attorney General Jeff Chiesa as the temporary successor.
Prior to the announcement, NY1 political host Errol Louis took to Twitter offering a unique choice to grab the spot.
<Hoping Gov. Christie will at least consider naming my friend (and Jersey resident) @loudobbsnews to the vacant Lautenberg senate seat.
