"Since taking office, Governor Christie has taken a decisive and responsible stand in order to put the best interests of all New Jerseyans ahead of partisan politics. His bipartisan successes in capping property taxes and implementing historic reforms to save our state’s collapsing pension and health benefits system, along with balancing four consecutive budgets without raising taxes, have given families and businesses across the state results they can be proud of," Moscaritolo said in a release.
"Governor Christie has an unwavering willingness to do what is right, not merely what is popular, as he displayed throughout the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. He deserves another four years as the Governor of New Jersey and I am proud to endorse him for reelection.”
Democrats outnumber Republicans in River Edge by a three to two margin--30 percent to 20.5 percent--and the town was carried by President Obama in 2012. River Edge includes an Asian American population of over 20 percent and a Hispanic population of nearly 8 percent.
In addition to Moscaritolo, other Bergen County Democrats backing Christie are: River Vale Mayor Joe Blundo, Teaneck Councilmen Yitz Stern, Elie Katz, and Mark Schwartz, and Garfield Deputy Mayor Tana Raymond.
