    GOP will get one more seat-at least for 1.5 years.

    Actually there is a conundrum in New Jersey election law because there are two conflicting rules for appointing senators in the same bill.

    The bill in question.

    P.L. 2011, c.37 (S923 3R)

    According to this statute the replacement would serve until the next general election.

    New Jersey Statutes - Title 19 Elections - 19:3-26 Vacancies in United States senate; election to fill; temporary appointment by governor. - New Jersey Attorney Resources - New Jersey Laws

    But according to this stattuate the replacement would aserve until the next primary.


    New Jersey Statutes - Title 19 Elections - 19:27-6 Congressional vacancies. - New Jersey Attorney Resources - New Jersey Laws

    Since you are a lawyer turtle, I presume you might find it interesting to read.

    Looks like we are down to zero senators, Menendez doesn't count for much.

    It'll be a Christie pick, which means they'll be an Obama buttlicker.

    Does that mean he'll pick himself?

    Half of himself would be enough.

    Wouldn't it blow your mind if he picked a democrat...
