River Edge Mayor Sandy Moscaritolo (D) is backing Chris Christie over Barbara Buono on November 5th, Save Jerseyans, giving the incumbent Republican another foothold in a Democrat-majority town carried by President Obama last fall.
It’s becoming a very familiar theme.
“Since taking office, Governor Christie has taken a decisive and responsible stand in order to put the best interests of all New Jerseyans ahead of partisan politics,” said Mayor Moscaritolo in a statement released by the Christie camp. “His bipartisan successes in capping property taxes and implementing historic reforms to save our state’s collapsing pension and health benefits system, along with balancing four consecutive budgets without raising taxes, have given families and businesses across the state results they can be proud of. Governor Christie has an unwavering willingness to do what is right, not merely what is popular, as he displayed throughout the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. He deserves another four years as the Governor of New Jersey and I am proud to endorse him for reelection.”
Governor Christie will spend Monday morning at his Southern Bergen Victory Office in nearby Carlstadt. Our latest Save Jersey public polling average puts him ahead of his Democrat challenger by 24-points.
