New Jersey's Christie to endorse Ehrlich on Saturday

Christie.jpgNew Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), whose election last year helped inspire former Maryland governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) to run again, plans to endorse Ehrlich on Saturday.

The Ehrlich campaign announced Friday that people who donated $50 to Ehrlich in the next 24 hours could be invited to the private reception with Christie where this will occur.

"If you like straight-talking governors who challenge the broken status quo, you will love Governor Christie and Bob Ehrlich," said an e-mail from Ehrlich's finance team to supporters. "They know the path to economic prosperity begins with strong families, thriving small businesses, and a government that respects your hard-earned dollar."

In November 2009, Christie became the first Republican to win a statewide election in New Jersey in 12 years.

And in other breaking news, the sun should rise in the east on Saturday, and somewhere a dog recently bit a man.

Seriously, whatever Gov. Christie's merits, how many undecided or persuadable Maryland voters were waiting for the governor of New Jersey to tell them who to vote for? (Though if the Republican Christie had endorsed O'Malley that would be briefly newsworthy due to the surprise factor.)

As long as it keeps Christie out of my home state which he is ruining, I am happy. Stay on the road!!!
