Christie picks up Sussex GOP endorsements, though some still elude him

All eight countywide elected officials from Sussex County today endorsed Christopher Christie for the Republican gubernatorial nomination, along with Sussex GOP Chair Ailish Hambel and former County Chairman Richard Zeoli. But Christie has not yet scored a Sussex sweep, with U.S. Rep. Scott Garrett (R-Wantage), State Sen. Steven Oroho (R-Franklin), Assemblywoman Alison McHose (R-Franklin), Assemblyman Gary Chiusano (R-Frankford), former State Sen. Robert Littell, and former GOP State Chair Virginia Littell still uncommitted in the Republican primary for Governor.

Christie, the former U.S. Attorney, picked up the backing of Sheriff Robert Untig, County Clerk Erma Gormley, Surrogate Nancy Fitzgibbons, and Freeholders Glen Vetrano, Jeffrey Parrot, Phillip Crabb, Harold Wirths, and Susan Zellman.
