Source: James running for East Orange council seat

Chris James, chief of staff for Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver (D-34), is running for an East Orange council seat on the organization ticket, according to an Essex County source.

James is running with mayoral candidate Lester Taylor, law partner of former Gov. Jim Florio.

"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!"
