Gubernatorial candidate Christopher Christie today picked up the endorsements of 234 Republican leaders and elected officials in Bergen County, the home county of his chief rival, former Bogota Mayor Steven Lonegan. Christie has the support of two-third of the county’s GOP Municipal Chairmen, and 23 Republican mayors.
Christie’s supporters include Bergen County GOP Chairman Robert Yudin, State Sen. Gerald Cardinale (R-Demarest), County Clerk Kathleen Donovan, Assemblymen John Rooney (R-Northvale) and David Russo (R-Ridgewood), Assemblywoman Charlotte Vandervalk (R-Montvale), and former Bergen County Executive William “Pat” Schuber.
“I am proud to support Chris Christie’s candidacy for Governor because he is the only person in this race who will make the difficult – but necessary decisions – to put New Jersey back on the right track,” said Cardinale, a nine-term Senator. “Chris will jumpstart our state’s economy by providing tax relief, creating new jobs, and helping homeowners.”
