U.S. Senator Rand Paul is coming to New Jersey on September 13 to endorse Steve Lonegan for Senate in the October 16 Special Election against Cory Booker.
Governor Chris Christie, who had a well publicized rift with Paul over the NSA’s monitoring of domestic communications, was invited to attend the Friday afternoon rally. Christie and Paul are widely considered GOP contenders for the 2016 presidential nomination.
Christie declined the invitation because he will be away celebrating the First Lady’s 50th birthday.
