EAST NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — The race for governor in New Jersey was officially underway this weekend, with Democratic state Sen. Barbara Buono kicking off her campaign, and incumbent Republican Gov. Chris Christie out meeting voters and collecting endorsements.
As WCBS 880’s Levon Putney reported, Christie was shaking hands at the Tops Diner Friday in East Newark.
“Enjoy breakfast. I won’t interrupt you,” Christie said. “I want to thank the mayor and all the members of the council who are here.”
The mayor in question is the chief executive of Harrison – Democrat Raymond McDonough – who has decided to endorse Christie.
