Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is reportedly on the list of people being considered to replace Jeff Sessions as attorney general. The news comes one day after President Donald Trump requested that Sessions resign from the position.
From 2002 to 2008 Christie served as a U.S. Attorney in New Jersey and after he dropped out of the 2016 presidential election he endorsed Trump. But, he's not the only person being considered for the job. The list of possible replacements reportedly includes Rudy Giuliani, Pam Bondi, and William Barr.
Sessions' chief of staff, Matthew Whitaker, is currently the acting attorney general and Trump tweeted that "a permanent replacement will be nominated at a later date."
