BERNARDSVILLE – New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie today endorsed Leonard Lance for Congress.
”I am proud to endorse my friend Leonard Lance for reelection to Congress,” said Gov. Christie at a breakfast in Bernardsville. “Leonard is a great representative, not only for his district, but also for our whole state in Washington. He knows that I stand with him as strongly he stands with me.”
Christie praised the Congressman representing New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District, “Leonard Lance is fighting to restore vibrancy to our private sector economy. He is fighting for fiscal responsibility.”
“I am truly honored to have Governor Christie’s endorsement,” said Lance. “I am fighting to bring the same kind of fiscal discipline to Washington that Gov. Christie has brought to New Jersey. I look forward to continuing to work with Chris Christie on the issues most important to New Jersey’s taxpayers.”
Tewksbury businessman David Larsen, recently endorsed by the West Jersey Tea Party and American Conservative Union PAC, is challenging Lance in next month’s Republican Primary.
