Breaking: Christie Picks Chiesa


At a press conference today, Governor Chris Christie named state attorney general Jeff Chiesa to serve as an interim U.S. Senator.

Chiesa will not run in October’s special election. Instead, he’s a ”place holder” who will serve until a new senator is elected. Former Bogota mayor Steve Lonegan remains the only Republican who has declared for the August Senate primary. Many other Republicans have declined to run.
