Guadagno pick evidence of Kyrillos clout

The selection of Monmouth County Sheriff Kim Guadagno as the GOP Lt. Governor candidate demonstrates the influence State Sen. Joseph Kyrillos (R-Middletown) has on Chris Christie's campaign for Governor. As the Monmouth County GOP seeks to regain control of the Board of Freeholders in a county that has become politically competitive over the last few years, it is helpful to the organization to have an influential ally chairing the Christie campaign – and potentially even more beneficial if Christie ousts Jon Corzine in November. Kyrillos pushed Guadagno to make an early endorsement of Christie in the race for Governor – a move that seems to benefit the new LG candidate and the Monmouth Republicans.
