Jumping way, way ahead of things

If Christopher Christie picks Kim Guadagno to run for Lt. Governor, and if they win the general election, look for Assemblyman David Rible (R-Wall) to seek her job as Monmouth County Sheriff. As Governor, Christie would appoint an Acting Sheriff, with the advise and consent of the State Senate. If he were to name Rible, it would trigger a special election convention to fill his eleventh district Assembly seat – assuming he wins re-election to a second term in November. That would mean a November 2010 special election to fill the remaining fourteen months of Rible's term. In the potentially competitive Monmouth County-based district, that would make for an interesting referendum on Christie's first ten months as Governor.
