Chris Christie said he doesn't know and doesn't care what the cost of the New Jersey special election will be:

"I don't know what the cost is and I quite frankly don't care. I don't think you can put a price tag on what it's worth it have an elected person in the United States Senate and I will do whatever I need to do to make sure those costs are covered because all the people of the state of New Jersey will benefit from it. And we're not going to be penny wise and pound foolish around here," said Christie at a press conference.
