New Jersey Democrats have recently been cozying up to Gov. Chris Christie, who holds a dramatic lead in the polls against his Democratic challenger, state Sen. Barbara Buono. Earlier this week, Democratic candidates for the state legislature were found to be advertising how many issues on which they agree with the Republican governor.
Yesterday, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate Cory Booker told a Newark crowd that he wanted to give the “Guv some love.” Booker said he was grateful to Christie for working hard on issues they could agree upon and that their relationship shows “that when people can reach over . . . lines that divide and make ties that bind what can be accomplished together.”
