Christopher Christie will have the organization line in Camden County – the third Republican organization to back his candidacy for Governor in the last five days. Christie won a January 21 straw poll of Camden GOP county committee members with 77% of the vote.
"Chris Christie is a candidate who brings real leadership to our party," said Camden County GOP Chairman Richard DeMichele, Jr., "In Camden County, we have seen firsthand the way that corruption and graft dramatically increase the cost of government. We know all too well about no-show jobs and trading taxpayer money for personal gain. And we know that it was Chris Christie who, as U.S. Attorney, convicted Wayne Bryant on two counts of fraud."
Christie won the backing of Monmouth County Republicans last Wednesday, and won the Union County GOP convention on Saturday with 74% of the vote.
