Christie issues statement backing Bell

Gov. Chris Christie today released a statement through the New Jersey State Republican Committee endorsing its nominee, Jeff Bell, for U.S. Senate against incumbent Cory Booker this year.

In response to the statement below, Bell said, “Chris Christie has achieved tremendous political success running as an economic and social conservative in the ‘blue state’ of New Jersey. I aim to replicate that in November. I’m honored to receive his endorsement and will join him in promoting pro-growth policies that will make our state a better place in which to live, work and raise a family.”

“New Jerseyans have made a great choice in electing Jeff Bell as our Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate. Jeff has proven to be a consistent and strong voice for promoting the important fiscal policies and pro-growth agenda that our country so badly needs, and I am proud to support his candidacy for the United States Senate. I look forward to the spirited campaign that lies ahead as Jeff, his campaign team, and supporters prepare for election day this fall.” – Gov. Chris Christie Christie issues statement backing Bell
