  •  Are you saying there could be a special... (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    senate seat election with the Governors election in Nov 2013?  

    I was assuming the special would have to be in 2014 with the rest of the 2014 Class, and thus along Lautenberg. But meaning Christie's hand picked Senator would serve the better part of two years (until 2014).

    •  The law says that if the vacancy occurs (7+ / 0-)

      more than 70 days prior to the next general election, the election should be held at that election.  It doesn't speciify the next federal general election.  So, from my reading, if Menendez were to resign before the end of this August, the special election would take place this November, in conjunction with the gubernatorial election.
