Guadagno ran with Christie but now high­lights their dif­fer­ences

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

TREN­TON | New Jersey Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno spent more than seven years tour­ing the state on be­half of Gov. Chris Christie, cut­ting rib­bons and hand­ing out her cell­phone num­ber to vot­ers.

While Ms. Guadagno is the lead­ing Re­pub­li­can to suc­ceed Mr. Christie in Tues­day’s pri­mary, she’s had to work hard to high­light her dif­fer­ences with a gover­nor whose pop­u­lar­ity took a beat­ing from the Ge­orge Washington Bridge lane clo­sure scan­dal and a failed pres­i­den­tial run.

New Jersey and Vir­ginia are the only two states with statewide races this year. Ms. Guadagno faces four Re­pub­li­can chal­lengers.
