Republican Sheriffs Endorse Christie
PARSIPPANY, NJ - All 11 of New Jersey's Republican Sheriffs today announced their endorsement for Chris Christie's candidacy at Veterans Memorial Park in Somerville. The eleven statewide Republican Sheriffs join the countless elected officials and municipal chairs from across the state in their endorsement of Christie.
"As US Attorney, Chris proved his dedication and determination through his tireless prosecution of child pornographers, terrorists, corrupt politicians, gang members, and human traffickers," said Morris County Sheriff Edward Rochford. "As governor, Chris will keep the fight going to fix Trenton with the same tenacity and honesty that he has demonstrated for the past seven years."
Chris Christie said, "I am honored by the support of these New Jersey Sheriffs who work each day to keep our communities safe. After working with me side by side for the last seven years, they know they'll have an ally in Trenton who will work with our law enforcement community to clean up our cities, reform our criminal justice system, and make New Jersey an even more vibrant and safe place to raise your families."
