  1. Twitter raised eyebrows at New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and questioned his motivations on Tuesday when he asserted that a special election would be held to fill the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg’s seat, striking his usual tough tone.

    “The costs associated with having the special election and primary, in my mind, cannot be measured against the value of having an elected member of the U.S. Senate,” Christie said. “I don’t know what the costs are and quite frankly I don’t care.”
