New Jersey Sen. Frank Lautenberg died on Monday and Geraldo Rivera wasted no time on his daily radio show making sure everyone knows that if Gov. Chris Christie wants to appoint him to the vacant seat, he’d gladly consider it. He has been talking for months about possibly running for the seat against Lautenberg anyway.
Veteran journalist Geraldo Rivera said Monday he’d “take the call” if New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie wanted to appoint him to New Jersey’s vacant U.S. Senate seat, but acknowledged the chances of that seem slim.
“I would definitely take the call,” Rivera said on the “Geraldo Rivera Radio Show.”
He made the comments on his show after The Daily Caller inquired about his interest in the seat after the news that 89-year-old New Jersey Democratic Sen. Frank Lautenberg died Monday.
In related news, I’d like to announce that if Elizabeth Hurley should decide she wants to call me up and ask me out on a date, I would take that call and seriously consider going on a date with her. You know, just in case.
