Joe Kyrillos is a member of Chris Christie's inner circle, and gets some mentions as a candidate for Lt. Governor next year. The Monmouth County Republican has served in the Legislature since age 27. He's passed up several chances to run statewide, including a shot at the 2008 U.S. Senate nomination.
Despite 21 years in Trenton and service as the GOP State Chairman, the FDU poll says that just 15% of New Jersey voters recognize Kyrillos' name. He has an even favorable/unfavorable rating of 3%-3%.
