N.J. residents can expect Christie robo-calls for GOP candidates

    N.J. Gov. Chris Christie is keeping busy. He spent part of last night on a conference call with GOP candidates and party activists last night, providing some encouragement before next week’s election.

    According to an Associated Press report, Christie recorded 35 robo-calls, meaning N.J. residents are likely to hear him on the other end of the phone over the next week supporting Republican candidates.

    Christie and Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno plan to campaign through Monday, and the guv says he’s hoping for GOP gains in North Jersey’s Bergen County and in South Jersey.

    In the last 50 years, only Democrat Jim McGreevey has gained seats in the Legislature in midterm elections.
