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.

"During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination.

But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die."- Nelson Mandela
