One of the online wings of the liberal NY Observer - politickernj.com - is speculating on who could fill Lobiondo seat if Lautenberg has to retire and Christie puts Lobiondo in the Senate - the NY Observer is floating the idea that a South Jersey radio host could be the pick to run for the Lobiondo seat - sounds far fetched and smells like a "planted" item. But Al Franken was a host on Air America before it tanked and looking to radio hosts who have a built in audience and therefore voting base makes sense to some

See the thing is - I think Lautenberg will be like Kennedy - he isn't going to step down. He will keep his seat, even if he is no longer able to even sit in Congress. He isn't going to want Christie to put a Republican in there. Of course, the democrats are already talking about trying to change the law, that they have enjoyed for years and years, which leaves it up to the Governor to make the replacement. This is Kennedy II playing out.
