Chris Christie to Endorse Republican Candidate for Senate, Not Do Anything Else For Him

Steve Lonegan is facing Cory Booker in a special election following Frank Lautenberg's death


You'd expect a Republican governor to back the state's GOP Senate candidate, but New Jersey's Senate race is a bit more complicated; Christie is pals with Cory Booker and sort of hates Republican Steve Lonegan, who challenged him in the primary for governor in 2009. Nevertheless, Lonegan announced on Wednesday that Christie will endorse him next week.
