KEARNY - Gov. Chris Christie said Wednesday he has exchanged phone conversations with Archbishop John Myers, but hasn’t seen him personally.
Myers, who is archbishop in Newark, has been targeted by Senate Democrats to step down, given the recent revelations that his diocese allowed a priest to spend time with minors when he was legally forbidden to do so.
Christie, who had been attending a ceremony at the Hudson County Correctional Facility today, did not say much more.
“We have exchanged phone conversation but have not met with each other, no,” he said.
Christie last week criticized his likely Democratic opponent for governor, Sen. Barbara Buono, for calling on Myers’ resignation.
Senate President Steve Sweeney has also now called for Myers’ departure.
