Cape May County GOP Chairman David Von Savage says that his organization has endorsed Christopher Christie for the Republican nomination for Governor, becoming the seventh county organization to put the former U.S. Attorney on their line.
"Governor Corzine obviously does not understand that the hardworking taxpayer is asked to reach deeper and more often into his pockets year after year to pay for the mistakes of our leaders in Trenton and Washington," said Von Savage, who is among the most ideologically conservative GOP party chairs. "Chris Christie gets it and he is on the side of the taxpayer."
Von Savage said that Christie will run on the Cape May County Regular Republican Organization line with first district Assembly candidates Mike Donohue and Frank Conrad, and Freeholder Leonard Desiderio.
"Donohue and Conrad will vote for the reforms in a Christie Administration that are absolutely necessary to roll back the size of government, get it off our backs and out of our wallets," said Von Savage.
The organization will also back Brendan Sciarra and Lynda Pagliughi for re-election to the Republican State Committee.
