State Sen. Ray Lesniak's proclamation of his longtime colleague state Sen. (and former Acting Governor) Dick Codey (D-27) as the state's Obi Wan-Kenobi obviously necessitates some context.
In that universe, Christie is Darth Vader, evidently.
Considering the fact that Lesniak's favorite actor Christopher Walken read for the part of Han Solo, Ray Ray probably sees himself as captain of the Millenium Falcon with Rafael Fajardo as Chewie.
The rest of the cast:
State Sen. Nia Gill (D-34) as Princess Lea Organa; Newark Mayor Cory Booker as Lobot; Bill Palatucci as Grand Moff Tarkin; state Sen. Kevin O'Toole as Emperor Palpatine; state Sen. Brian P. Stack (D-33) as Boba Fett, and Elizabeth Mayor Chris Bollwage - once Lesniak's first choice for governor after Booker - as C-3PO.

"Christie’s method for coping with scandal has been more complicated. In January, the seemingly-local issue of lane closings on the George Washington Bridge, which created a massive traffic jam in the Hudson River town of Fort Lee, became one of national interest when it was revealed that one of Christie’s closest staffers had ordered them—for what looked like political retribution against a Democratic mayor. The scandal was quickly dubbed 'Bridgegate,' and unfortunately for Christie, it played into his reputation as a bully. Christie's response was to act unlike himself: humble." - Olivia Nuzzi- The Daily Beast
