Corzine defies Christie with nominations

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - December 15, 2009

The appointments were released Monday. Some require state Senate approval, while dozens do not.

The nominations are full of well-known Democrats.

Christie has threatened to have his allies in the state Senate block nominations that he finds troublesome.

Disputes over appointments began two weeks ago when Corzine nominated chief of staff Ed McBride to a judgeship.
