NJ Gov Christie Endorses Michael Grimm for Congress

NY-13 Congressional candidate Michael Grimm today announced that he has received NJ Governor Chris Christie's endorsement.

New York’s 13th Congressional District covers Staten Island and part of Brooklyn. Governor Palin endorsed Grimm on July 28, 2010, along with John Gomez for NY-2 who ran unopposed and won. She was the first to be acknowledged and recognized during his victory speech. US for Palin Publisher, Ron Devito is campaigning for Grimm. For the primary, Devito walked door-to-door in the 60th and 79th Election Districts, installed lawn signs in the 10314 zip code, called voters on primary day and closed the PS 36 poll. When Devito arrived to the victory celebration, Allegretti had already called Grimm to concede. Watch Grimm's victory speech here. Devito is continuing his work for Grimm, having completed door-to-door walking blitzes in the 34th, 42nd, and 57th Election Districts. He will begin another door-to-door blitz in the 85th district.

Governor Chris Christie Endorses Michael Grimm for

Dear Friend:

We are thrilled to share the exciting news that Michael Grimm has been endorsed by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Governor Christie, who challenged and defeated a Democratic incumbent last November, is reforming New Jersey by controlling the budget and rebuilding its economy. Governor Christie has taken on everyone in New Jersey from the political machines to the news media. Governor Christie is determined to get New Jersey back on track. The Governor’s endorsement of Michael Grimm is further evidence that Grimm is part of a new wave of Republican leadership; the type of change that our country and our district wants and deserves.

In endorsing Grimm, Governor Christie said, “As a U.S. Marine, former FBI Special Agent and small businessman, Michael Grimm’s background does not resemble a typical politician. It exemplifies Michael Grimm’s spirited dedication to serving this nation. Washington is in dire need of a true representative of the people who will stand up and fight for limited government, cut taxes, rein in spending, and most importantly create jobs and opportunities for the people of his district and our country. Michael Grimm is committed to these principles and therefore, I am committed to helping him win in November.”

Governor Christie has gained the reputation of being a fighter during his tenure. He is someone who will fight for what he believes in. Michael Grimm has the same fire and drive to serve his constituents and will fight for NY just like Governor Christie fights for NJ. Grimm’s service to his country, as a Marine Combat Veteran and as an undercover FBI Special Agent, has given him the leadership ability to take on the Washington Establishment. As our Congressman, Michael Grimm will not stop fighting until he cuts our taxes, stops the out-of-controls spending and creates new jobs.

“Governor Christie’s endorsement means a great deal to me because his unwavering dedication to his principles has been an inspiration to me throughout the campaign. No matter the circumstances, Governor Christie consistently dedicates all of his energy to serve the people of New Jersey and works tirelessly towards that end. This endorsement is an honor and I promise to fight for my district with as much vigor and initiative as Governor Christie does for New Jersey residents,” said Grimm.

With your ardent support and these trailblazing endorsements, such as Governor Christie’s, the Grimm Campaign’s momentum is soaring. We have come this far because of all of your support and dedicated efforts. Now we need to ask you to help us take this country back on Election Day and help us GET OUT THE VOTE ON NOVEMBER 2ND!

We thank you for all of your support.

Team Grimm
