Bret Schundler, who became the darling of national conservatives during his nine years as Mayor of Jersey City and won the Republican nomination for Governor in 2001, today endorsed Christopher Christie for the GOP gubernatorial nomination.
"I know we need a strong conservative leader who will stand up for middleclass taxpayers, and I believe that Chris Christie will be that kind of leader," said Schundler. "Chris will be the tough, fiscal conservative we need to cut income and business taxes, provide property tax relief and get our state's economy back on track."
Christie, the former U.S. Attorney, praised Schundler's record as mayor.
"Mayor Schundler breathed new life into Jersey City and mobilized a grassroots movement for property tax reform," said Christie. "As Governor, I will revive our state's commitment to revitalizing our cities, cutting our taxes and reforming our schools."
