Guadagno ran with Christie but now highlights their differences
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.
