Gov. Chris Christie has picked off another endorsement that in 2009 went to Democratic Gov. Jon Corzine.
The leadership of the Lakewood Orthodox Jewish community will formally back the governor this afternoon in Lakewood, according to two sources.
A voluntary organization of leaders, the Lakewood Vaad oversees a local unified voting bloc.
The Vaad ordinarily endorses in the fall before the election. A GOP source told PolitickerNJ.com that the community this time wanted to show early unity after what happened four years ago.

The Orthodox Jewish community in Lakewood ended up voting for Christie by a 2-1 margin despite the leaders’ declared support for Corzine.
The Passaic County Building and Construction Trades Council today endorsed Andre Sayegh for Mayor citing his effective leadership, efforts to combat crime, and promotion of business and overall economic development in the City of Paterson.Read More >

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop- PolitickerNJ.com
