Running With Christie - My9 New Jersey

Running With Christie

Posted: Updated:
Parsippany, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Tomorrow is Election Day and New Jersey's gubernatorial candidates are hitting the campaign trail hard in order to get people out to the polls.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is the latest Republican to come out and stump for the governor. The two met up in Rutherford, New Jersey where Giuliani praised Christie and their long standing relationship. "He's a good friend and someone who's doing a great job and I'm just honored to support him. I think he's turned the state around, I think he's one of the great governor's in the country and he's a good friend of mine and I just want to show him my support," Giuliani said.

Friday Governor Christie continued his campaign bus tour in Parsippany where he was greeted by eager voters some who even asked him to sign his campaign posters because they think it will be a great piece of memorabilia to have should the current governor run for President in 2016.

Parsippany is only 20 miles from Roxbury, New Jersey where residents continue to struggle with the horrible odor and toxic fumes coming out of the Fenimore Landfill there.

Ironically, Barbara Buono's campaign stop Friday was to Roxbury, New Jersey where Governor Christie feels she is using her visit to this particular town to her political advantage in order exploit the people there that need help. He confirmed that he is doing the best that he can to try and help the people in that area and that the situation is getting better every day.

Senator Buono feels that Christie has been somewhat dismissive of the people of Roxbury's needs and concerns.

Christie's hometown of Mendham, New Jersey is only 7 miles from Roxbury Township and residents there just don't understand why Christie hasn't been able to show his face there yet.

Scrubbers are currently in place at the landfill which are helping to control the smell a little bit, however many residents remain concerned that this is simply just masking the smell and the real dangers that lurk in the landfill.

Christie did address some of the presidential aspiration rumors that seemed to surround him throughout this campaign and said that he is leaving the door open, but right now he is really all about New Jersey
