Christie on legislature leadership fight: “I’m committed” to Sweeney

UNION CITY – With tensions rising in the legislative leadership struggle between State Sen. President Steve Sweeney (D-3) and state Senate Minority Leader Tom Kean Jr. (R-21), Gov. Chris Christie seemed to nod south, not north, regarding who he favored. 

“I’m committed to Stephen, and he’s committed to me – I’ll be meeting with him this week,” Christie said, adding that he had no comment about Kean. “We’ll do the best we can. Elections have consequences, and now we go back to work. We’ll see where we go from there.”
