Judge David Bauman would become the first Asian-American to serve on the court. Robert Hanna is president of the state Board of Public Utilities.

The Republican governor and Democrat-led Senate have clashed over prior judicial nominees.

The Democrat-controlled Judiciary Committee voted down Christie’s most recent choices for the court and the panel stalled his first nominee for a year before giving her a hearing.

The governor angered Democrats early on by failing to give tenure to a moderate justice who was the court’s only black member.
