Senator Frank (D, NJ) Lautenberg Died – Governor Christie to Name Successor

The death of Lautenberg, a Democrat, creates a vacancy that Republican Gov. Christie will fill through appointment. How long that appointee would serve is unclear, but much of the decision rests with Christie.

There are two conflicting state statutes that refer to Senate vacancies, one of which says there would not be an election until 2014. But Christie also could call a special election this year.

  1. I would prefer that New Jersey bury The Lautenberg Amendment with its author.
