Gov. Christie Endorses Friend For Senate Seat

TRENTON, NJ (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie has wasted no time endorsing longtime friend Joe Kyrillos for a U.S. Senate seat in New Jersey.

Christie made it official while campaigning with the GOP state senator in Union County this week. The governor says New Jersey “would be extraordinarily well-served” if residents were represented by Kyrillos in Washington.

The 51-year-old is seeking the GOP nomination to challenge Democratic incumbent Bob Menendez in November. Menendez is better known and better financed, having amassed nearly $7 million for the race.

Kyrillos, who kicked off his campaign Feb. 1, hasn’t submitted a campaign finance report.

The veteran New Jersey lawmaker and former state GOP chairman has been Christie’s closest Republican ally in the Legislature. And Christie and his wife were match-makers for Kyrillos and his wife, Susan.

    CAN YOU PICTURE CHRISTIE AND LIMBAUGH DOING THE NASTY? EEEEW TOE UP WITH THE THROW UP!

    Kyrillos is the embodiment of the old saying that “politicians need to be changed often, like dirty diapers–and for the same reason.” He tried to use his official position for years to ram a “town center” project (actually a massive commercial and multi-housing development) down the throats of citizens in Middletown. Kyrillos had connections to the developer, so he wasn’t interested in the opinions of the people who actually live there. We could expect more of the same if we sent this man to Washington. It says a lot about Christie that he thinks Kyrillos would make a good Senator. When will Republicans learn that politicians should listen to voters, not donors?
