Christie would have to resign under Democratic proposal
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -- Democratic lawmakers say they will introduce a bill this week requiring Gov. Chris Christie and future governors to resign from office if they seek the presidency.
Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg and Sen. Raymond Lesniak said Wednesday they will introduce the measure during Thursday's session.
The senators do not dispute the bill is unlikely to be signed by the Republican governor but they say it's worth pursuing because Christie is spending too much time out of the state.
Christie announced his candidacy for the GOP presidential nomination last month in Livingston but has spent much time outside the state campaigning.
He has said he uses technology to keep tabs on state affairs while beyond its borders.
