Flashpoint: Hillside

Gov. Chris Christie is scheduled to campaign in Hillside with his longtime political ally, Mayor Joe Menza.

Menza defeated the Union County Democratic Committee four years ago to become mayor, and is seeking a second term in office.

Christie is set to appear with Menza on the day before Election Day.

U.S. Rep. Donald Payne (D-10) supports a challenger to Menza, Councilwoman Angela Garretson.

Christie, according to sources, will also campaign next week in Linden, home to another ally, Mayor Richard Gerbounka.
