  •  So from now through October (0+ / 0-)

    the GOP has one more vote in the Senate than before, and we have one fewer. (I'm assuming Markey takes MA-Sen.) That's just wunnerful and will make Harry Reid's job more challenging.

    •  That's just a fact of NJ law (0+ / 0-)

      Some states require the appointed Senator to be from the same party as the deceased incumbent, but most don't. Christie could have placed a temp in the Senate until Nov 2014. I am surprised he didn't.
