In 15 days, the voters of New Jersey will select candidates for the senate seat vacated by the death of Senator Frank Lautenberg.
The special election will remain on October 16th now that New Jersey’s top court has refused to take up a legal challenge to the date.
Government lawyers argued Tuesday that the New Jersey Supreme Court should reject a request to move a special U.S. Senate election that Gov. Chris Christie scheduled three weeks before the state’s regular Nov. 5 election.
Candidates came with a thousand names on a petition to take part in the upcoming special election.
