New Jersey Preps for Election Bonanza

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) "is ready to hire more state workers and rent extra voting machines to avoid any last-minute chaos between New Jersey's two major elections this year," the Newark Star Ledger reports.

"Christie called a special Senate election for Oct. 16 at an estimated cost of $12 million -- a price tag that would rise if the Republican governor goes through with any of the backup plans his staff described to the court."

"The date for the Senate election -- 20 days before the Nov. 5 vote for governor and for all the seats in the Legislature -- has rankled Democrats who said Christie could have combined the two elections but chose to spend millions to split them and boost his re-election chances."
