Sources: County exec, mayor join Dems for Christie

Posted: Updated:

By ANGELA DELLI SANTI 

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Two elected officials from North Jersey are set to become the latest Democrats to defect to Republican Gov. Chris Christie.

People familiar with the plan say state Sen. Brian Stack will endorse Christie Monday afternoon in Union City, and Essex County Executive Joe DiVincenzo will endorse the governor Tuesday in West Orange. Stack is also mayor of Union City.

The people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak before the official announcements.

Christie would not talk about the endorsements Monday.

The governor and possible 2016 presidential contender is looking to win by a landslide against state Sen. Barbara Buono, in what he hopes to be a display of bipartisan appeal.

Christie has already been been endorsed by some less well-known Democrats.

    Newark school enrollment problems

    Friday, August 22 2014 5:17 PM EDT2014-08-22 21:17:11 GMT
    The school year in Newark is getting off to a rocky start. Classes start in less than two weeks and parents are still waiting in line for hours to find out where their kids are enrolled. The problem is being blamed on a glitch in the school's new online open enrollment system. To say mother of three Jennifer Caraballo is frustrated may be an understatement. She is one of hundreds of Newark parents desperately now trying to find a new school for her children.
