BELMAR – Gov. Chris Christie told residents he refuses to be labeled too moderate or too conservative after being asked by a resident if he thinks he’s too moderate for the Republican Party.
The governor brushed off the notion that he doesn’t conform to GOP party standards, saying that people “try and put you in a box for their own advantage.”
“As for my standing in the Republican Party, listen, I say what I think and I don’t worry about labels,” he said. “Man, I’m the same guy I was two years ago, three years ago, when I ran that I am today.”
Lew Candura, the veteran chair of the Morris County Democratic Committee, will retire this year and back the organization's executive director, Chip Robinson, to serve as his successor.Read More >
