New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) seems to have the backing of at least one Democratic mayor in his state if he decided to run for president.
In an interview with CNN on Tuesday Union City Mayor Brian P. Stack (D) said he’d likely support Christie if he ran for president in 2016. CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Stack if Christie runs for president “will you support him?”
“I’d be inclined to support the governor, I think it would be a great for New Jersey and I think he’d be a great president,” Stack said. “But I think right now, his job has got to be focus on New Jersey. I don’t think the presidency should even come up right now. I think it should be focused on New Jersey, focused on what we need to put more jobs out there and do what he talked about today.”
Tapper then asked if Christie could recover from the allegations surrounding him related to the George Washington Bridge scandal.
“I think — I think he will bounce back. I think people driving this have their own political agenda, which is something that we’ll be seeing,” Stack added. “I think a lot of them have ambitions for higher office and it’s not about New Jersey. I think it’s about self-serving. “
