Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has named his state’s attorney general to hold the seat of the late Democratic Sen. Frank Lautenberg until a special election in October. New Jersey Attorney General Jeff Chiesa is a Republican.

Lautenberg, 89, died from complications of pneumonia Monday.

Chiesa graduated from the University of Notre Dame and Catholic University of America’s law school. He will serve temporarily until a new senator is elected. Chiesa will not run in the special election.

"To have this chance to continue to serve in public life is a wonderful opportunity for everybody," Chiesa said at a news conference with Christie.
