NJ Supreme Court to hear challenge to special election

WASHINGTON -- Maybe the special election date isn't quite set in stone just yet.

The New Jersey Supreme Court will take up a Democratic challenge to the Oct. 16 election date set by Gov. Christie, a court spokeswoman confirmed Friday afternoon.

With an Aug. 13 primary, the case will likely be held very quickly.

An appellate court on Thursday ruled against the challenge and said Christie had the authority to set the October election.

This is a developing story. More as it comes in.

Earlier we had a round up of the developments in the first week of the Senate primary.
