State Sen. Michael Doherty (R-23) isn't going to run against Gov. CHris Christie in a Republican Primary and, in fact, supports Christie's re-election.
Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean, Jr. (R-21) tonight announced that Christie will have the "unanimous and unwavering support" of all sixteen sitting Republican New Jersey senators in his bid for re-election, including movement conservative Doherty.
"Governor Chris Christie has done exactly what he was elected to do, end government as usual at the State House and put our state back on the path to fiscal strength and economic prosperity for all," Kean said. "He is a strong leader for a state that for too long suffered under governors without the vision or discipline to create lasting economic opportunity for all New Jerseyans. He has by any measure earned another term.
"From pension and benefits reform to property tax relief to ethics reform, Chris Christie has been a champion for common sense solutions to New Jersey's persistent challenges," he added. "The sixteen members of the Senate Republican Caucus look forward to continue the fight for a more affordable New Jersey through next years campaign and for another four years."
While describing to fellow Republicans a conversation he said he had with Newark Mayor Ras Baraka, Gov. Chris Christie borrowed a self-attribution from his old pal George W. Bush.Read More >

"And here was Christie — a tell-it-like-it-is, straight-talking, no-nonsense Jersey guy — telling about 60 members of the media what he really thought. 'Governor Branstad is a role model for me,' Christie gushed, referring to his 67-year-old counterpart from Iowa."- The New York Times
