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."

"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
