Saxton endorses Christie

Former Republican Congressman Jim Saxton endorsed ex-U.S. Attorney Chris Christie for governor today.

Saxton, who left the House in January after serving 24 years, said that Christie “will get our state's economy back on track and his proven leadership will provide the platform for improvements in all areas of our state.”

"As someone who has fought to keep jobs in New Jersey, I know Chris's business-friendly plan will reduce taxes for small businesses, break down overbearing regulation, and create an environment where job creation is a reality,” he said.

Christie has the endorsement of all but one sitting Republican Congressmen. U.S. Rep. Scott Garrett (R-Wantage) has remained neutral.
