Lautenberg, the last remaining World War II veteran in the senate, died June 17 morning. He was 89.
Soon after, Gov. Chris Christie called for a special primary election to be followed by an election Oct. 16. The current Senate term expires in January 2015.
Christie, much to the consternation of candidates and critics, decided to hold a special election instead of scheduling it during the November election. Primary and special elections could run the state an estimated $12 million apiece.
