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.
When Christie ran against Corzine, the leaders backed the incumbent Democratic governor, but students in the community supported the Republican challenger.
The Orthodox Jewish community in Lakewood ended up voting for Christie by a 2-1 margin despite the leaders’ declared support for Corzine.

"Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, a Hudson County Democrat, is balking. He claimed Tuesday that members of his caucus are divided over the measure and that his house is in no real rush – besides, even if enacted this year, the reforms would not take effect until 2017, he said. And with the growing belief that Christie could skip town to run for president, some Democrats are not eager to give him another talking point for his résumé. Christie’s plans to stump for Republican candidates in New Hampshire later Thursday only fuel that suspicion." - columnist Charles Stile- The Bergen Record
