Allen enters governor’s office; so does Addiego

Sen. Diane Allen (R-7) just went into the governor’s office.

Gov. Chris Christie is exerting pressure on state Senate Minority Leader Tom Kean, Jr. (R-21) to reconsider his decision to stay in leadership after Tuesday’s election, sources say.

Allen is one of 11 GOP caucus members who signed their name in support of Kean’s return to the chair of power, but sources say she could change her mind if Christie persuades her that the party needs to move in another direction.

Sen. Dawn Marie Addiego (R-8) also disappeared behind closed doors with Christie.
