Democratic school board president won't rule out backing Christie

Chris Christie, more invincible than Pat Benatar?

Via Politicker NJ, here two more examples of elected New Jersey Democrats who are clearly comfortable with the idea of Chris Christie's reelection.

This is the most telling.

Blocks away at her campaign kickoff at the Cuban Club, Roselle School Board President Donna Obe is likewise less than focused on gubernatorial politics.

She told that she’s a lifelong Democrat.

Is she backing Buono?

“I can’t say right now,” Obe said.

Would she commit to supporting a Democrat in the general election?

She wouldn’t.

A Democratic school board president!

Then there's the case of the Democrat who's completely uninspired by likely gubernatorial nominee, Barbara Buono.-- this time, it's Elizabeth Mayor Chris Bollwage.

Mayor Chris Bollwage said he feels uninspired by gubernatorial candidate state Sen. Barbara Buono's (D-18) campaign and doesn’t foresee himself working hard on her behalf this year, if at all.

“I have no history with her and I don’t see any plan from her campaign other than to attack (Governor Chris) Christie,” Bollwage told Friday night as he campaigned with his friend, state Sen. Ray Lesniak (D-20).

“There is no plan from Senator Buono,” added Bollwage, leader of the state's fourth largest city. “If I see a plan, I’ll reassess. But as of now, I’m not involved, nor do I plan to get involved. I’m voting for her, but I’m not inspired."
