Asformer U.S. Attorney Chris Christietries to make up his mind about whether or not to run for governor, state Sen. Sean Kean (R-Monmouth) and Assembly members Dave Rible (R-Wall) and Mary Pat Angelini (R-Ocean)are trying to nudgehim into the race against incumbent Gov. Jon Corzine.
“Having served in the Legislature for six years, I have seen firsthand the urgent need for reform in New Jersey government,” said Kean in a release.”Chris Christie has demonstrated that he will not hesitate to take on the system that has made New Jersey increasingly unaffordable.”
Kean and his running mates pledged their support for Christie.
“New Jersey is clearly headed in the wrong direction and that is why tens of thousands of people move out every year,” said Rible.”We need someone like Chris Christie in Trenton to lead the fight to make New Jersey more affordable and less corrupt.”
“As Governor, Chris Christie can utilize his experience in prosecuting corrupt public officials to enact the ethics reforms that we so desperately need in New Jersey,” added Angelini. “Chris Christie has shown that he will take on–and win–the tough fights and that is why we need him fighting for the taxpayers in Trenton.”
