In LD 40, O’Toole to run with Yudin’s backing

Sources close to Bergen County politics say in the name of re-electing Gov. Chris Christie and maintaining peace in the GOP valley, Bergen County Republican Committee Chairman Bob Yudin and state Sen. Kevin O’Toole (R-40) will work together – and not at odds – in 2013.

Yudin will give O’Toole the coveted Bergen County line.

That was a question mark at one point in the aftermath of a grisly O’Toole-backed challenge to Yudin’s chairmanship earlier this year. 

Most observers figured that despite the bad blood between the two of them, they would resolve the situation in a Christie-centric political universe, which is exactly what happeend this week following an O’Toole-Yudin breakfast sit-down.

"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!"
