TRENTON Gov. Christie on Monday endorsed U.S. Rep. Frank LoBiondo for reelection, saying he would use his political muscle and fund-raising prowess to help keep the longtime congressman in Washington. "I'm all in on this one, people," Christie said at a Statehouse news conference alongside LoBiondo, a Republican like the governor. "I am going to be working politically. . . . My organization is going to be engaged in helping to raise money and keep together the great coalition that we had together in South Jersey.

I can see the future. But I will never use my powers for evil. Let other columnists recklessly ruminate about what might happen during the next 12 months; my observations benefit from 20/20 hindsight. So I can confidently predict that the biggest New Jersey story in 2014 will be . . . Chris Christie. Not simply for being his ever-semi-lovable self, but for single-handedly saving the "NY/NJ" Super Bowl. On Feb. 2, as the "Superblizzard of the Century" bears down on MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ/NY, President Obama offers the governor a chance to join him for an emergency photo op aboard Marine One. Christie blows off the president and, having thus genuflected to his party's fright wing, decrees that the bowl game be moved to the nearby Meadowlands mega-mall formerly known as Xanadu.

Gov. Christie last week took over the chairmanship of the influential Republican Governors Association, which will let him build relationships across the country as he campaigns for candidates in the 36 states with 2014 gubernatorial elections. But as candidates in those states seek to reap the benefits of Christie's charisma and fund-raising prowess, prospects for Republicans at home in New Jersey are far less certain. Even as Christie cruised to reelection this month with a 22-point victory, his popularity did not sweep more Republicans into the Democratic-controlled Legislature.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Ohio Gov. John Kasich has seen Gov. Christie at his pugnacious best, so he knows what the rest of the country should expect as New Jersey's famously blunt governor takes on a new job that will have him crossing the nation to campaign for fellow governors. "Christie, he's now like a force, so people want to be around him," Kasich said at a conference at the luxurious Phoenician resort here, where Christie is set to become chairman of the Republican Governors Association on Thursday.

TRENTON Chris Christie wasn't the only one taking a victory lap the day after the election. Steve Sweeney took one, too. New Jersey's Senate president, a Gloucester County Democrat, exulted after his reelection Tuesday, mocked the Senate Republican minority leader who had funneled money to his challenger, and proclaimed that Democrats - who didn't lose a seat in the Senate despite a blowout win by Gov. Christie - would not be cowed by the Republican governor,...

TRENTON - Gov. Christie's postelection domination of national media continued Thursday with a new Time magazine cover featuring a silhouette of the newly anointed front-runner for the 2016 Republican nomination and the headline: "The Elephant in the Room. " The Internet's reaction was not kind, to say the least - to Time. First of all, some noted that with Christie's landslide win this week, he is not the proverbial elephant in the room - everyone is well aware of his presence. CNN devoted much of its week to what felt like wall-to-wall coverage of the New Jersey governor's political future.

Despite a double-digit win by Gov. Christie, Democrats held on to control of the Legislature, with Republicans projected to make at best modest inroads as races were being called late Tuesday night. In an election marked by record spending - as of last week, outside groups had poured $38 million into state races and ballot questions - Republicans weren't on track Tuesday night to pick up nearly enough seats to wrest control from the Democrats, who had a 24-16 majority in the Senate and 48-32 majority in the Assembly.

NEW JERSEY'S produced great leaders in the past - that blue-eyed crooner who rose to Chairman of the Board, or the loner on guitar who became The Boss, and that neurotic wiseguy who became leader of the Soprano crime family. But the Garden State hasn't produced a U.S. president in more than 100 years (Grover Cleveland), and out by icy Lake Sunapee in New Hampshire, up in the bleachers at wrestling matches in Davis County, Iowa, and all along the Reedy River in Greenville, S.C., Republicans aren't quite ready to place all their dreams into Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in 2016.

All we are saying Is give peace a chance. - John Lennon That's the message Chris Christie hopes to spread across the country today with a predicted double-digit victory in his bid to remain New Jersey's governor and boost an expected presidential run. The Republican hopes to take enough Democratic votes from challenger Barbara Buono to prove he's a moderate who can stop the partisan fighting that has crippled Washington's ability...

With polls predicting a commanding win for Gov. Christie on the eve of New Jersey's general election, legislative candidates entered the final stretch of campaigning Monday, with Republicans hopeful that they could capitalize on Christie's popularity by swinging Democratic voters. Democrats, meanwhile, were confident that they would hang onto their majorities in both houses, where all 120 legislators are up for election. Tuesday's ballot also includes county, municipal, and school board races and state and local ballot questions.
