Director of NJ Black Minister's Council Endorses Chris Christie Over School Voucher Support

Bishop Reginald Jackson notes he endorsed Corzine when Christie first ran in 2009


Gov. Chris Christie's strong support of school vouchers today earned him the endorsement of Bishop Reginald Jackson, one of New Jersey's most influential black ministers.

Jackson, the executive director of the New Jersey Black Ministers Council and a Newark community leader, described himself as a Democrat and noted that he endorsed Democratic Gov. Jon Corzine in 2009 when Christie first ran.
