The Chris Christie Option: No October Surprise Here

Chris Christie's options
  1. Name a Republican to hold the seat and then delay an election on a replacement until 2014.
  2. Set a primary election as early as August, which would mean a special election in October.
  3. Schedule a November 2013 election, when Christie runs for re-election.
And the winner is.......

Option #2.

Christie Decides on October Vote for New Senator.   (The New York Times, 6/4/2013)

Big surprise, huh?
