Christie receives unanimous endorsement of Senate Republican Caucus

State Sen. Michael Doherty (R-23) isn’t going to run against Gov. CHris Christie in a Republican Primary and, in fact, supports Christie’s re-election.

Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean, Jr. (R-21) tonight announced that Christie will have the “unanimous and unwavering support” of all sixteen sitting Republican New Jersey senators in his bid for re-election, including movement conservative Doherty.

“Governor Chris Christie has done exactly what he was elected to do, end government as usual at the State House and put our state back on the path to fiscal strength and economic prosperity for all,” Kean said. “He is a strong leader for a state that for too long suffered under governors without the vision or discipline to create lasting economic opportunity for all New Jerseyans.  He has by any measure earned another term.

“From pension and benefits reform to property tax relief to ethics reform, Chris Christie has been a champion for common sense solutions to New Jersey’s persistent challenges,” he added. “The sixteen members of the Senate Republican Caucus look forward to continue the fight for a more affordable New Jersey through next years campaign and for another four years.”

"Since the print publication of this list, Christie, in his capacity as chairman of the Republican Governors Association, helped decisively turn the midterm elections in the Republicans' favor, which makes him a bit more influential than we initially gave him credit for, post-Bridgegate. So when your state governments do absolutely nothing for you for the next four years, be sure to thank him!"
