Christie says he hadn’t heard of Silva until the weekend

LITTLE FERRY – Milly Silva.

The name contained little resonance for the sitting Republican governor.

Christie’s Democratic challenger, state Sen. Barbara Buono (D-18), yesterday selected Silva as her running mate.

Today, Christie reacted personally to the selection.

“I never heard of her until this weekend,” Christie said. “I hope she has time to vote in a gubernatorial campaign, unlike last time.”

PolitickerNJ.com reported yesterday that Silva did not vote in the 2009 gubernatorial contest.
