Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) Has Died

He was 89 and had been absent from the Senate floor for much of the year, reports WaPo.

Lautenberg’s death means the seat will be filled temporarily by an appointee selected by Republican Gov. Chris Christie. And in addition to holding an election for a full term in 2014, there also will be a special election later this year.
