Number 7: Kevin O’Toole

Kevin O’Toole, 40th District Senator

Strengths: Christie’s bird dog on legislative matters, the Korean American lawmaker has the best all-around political skill set among Republicans in Trenton.  

Weaknesses: He’s spent more time focused on building up a successful law firm than convincing peers he is a future contender for statewide office.

Prognosis: An unlikely gubernatorial candidate.
