New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is being criticized from the left and the right as hypocritical for his decision to hold a special U.S. Senate election in October instead of during the November general election.
U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg's nearly three decades in office and the causes he championed were remembered at a funeral service in New York attended by Governor Chris Christie, much of the New Jersey Congressional delegation as well as former Governors McGreevey and Florio.
Less than 24 hours after Gov. Chris Christie announced a special election will be held to permanently fill the seat left vacant by the death of Sen. Frank Lautenberg at least four people are considering running in the election.
