One Somerset senator congratulated another today.
State Sen. Christopher “Kip” Bateman (R-16), Branchburg, who sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he was happy to hear of Gov. Chris Christie’s choice for U.S. Senate.
Like Bateman, Attorney General Jeff Chiesa is a Branchburg resident.
“An excellent choice,” Bateman said. “Jeff is so qualified, he can go down to Washington and hit the ground running. I couldn’t be happier.
“From one Branchburg senator to another, congratulations,” Bateman said.
