How Christie Can Help GOP Keep New Jersey Senate Seat

Nate Silver: "If Mr. Christie wants to maximize the G.O.P.'s chances of holding on to the seat, the path is fairly straightforward. He would want to appoint a moderate Republican who had held a prominent elected office before, who could raise money quickly and who could scale up to the effort that a statewide campaign would require."

"Mr. Christie might have decent choices from New Jersey's list of current United States representatives. Six of the state's 12 representatives are Republicans, and most of those Republicans are quite moderate... In particular, Mr. Christie could appoint one of the two Republican representatives -- Frank LoBiondo of the Second Congressional District and Jon Runyan of the Third -- who won re-election last year in districts carried by President Obama."

John Avlon looks at five possible Christie picks.
