Republican candidate for governor Chris Christie has tapped Monmouth County Sheriff Kim Guadagno as his running mate and Lieutenant Governor candidate for the 2009 election.
During the announcement, which was made by video via the candidate’s social networking sites, Mr. Christie said “Times are tough and the issues are too serious not to be tackling our state’s problems head on. We just cannot afford to do it any other way. That’s why you’ll see Kim and I all across the state of New Jersey whether it’s on their front porches or in diners, talking directly to you, the people of New Jersey about your problems and your concerns.”
The two running mates have a Monday campaign schedule that includes an announcement event in Asbury Park.
Later, the two will make a stop at The Reo Diner in Woodbridge.
The day’s final stop is at a front yard meet and greet at the home of Garfield Councilwoman Tana Raymond, a Democrat.
The sitting governor, Democrat Jon S. Corzine, has yet to announce his pick for lieutenant governor yet.
