The Newest Senator

The Newark Star Ledger profiles Sen. Jeffrey Chiesa (R-NJ), "an affable career prosecutor appointed by Gov. Chris Christie (R) to watch over the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg's (D) seat until mid-October."

"Chiesa is relying on a hybrid staff -- made up of former employees at the attorney general's office, people he hired when he was Christie's chief counsel, and veteran Washington hands like Ken Lundberg, former communications director for recently retired Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-ME) -- to helps him navigate the Capitol's secret passageways, centuries-old rules and the current blizzard of bills."
