Governor Chris Christie is holding two events tomorrow, according to the daily schedule released by his office.
The first event is in Newark, at 11:30 a.m., one half hour after Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno launches her own campaign for Governor at LaPlaya in Keansburg. Christie is signing an Executive Order and holding a round-table with recovering addicts at Integrity House. His second event is a bill signing at outside his office in Trenton at 2:30 p.m.

Only 18% of New Jersey registered voters approve of Governor Chris Christie’s job performance and 73% disapprove, according to a FDU Public Mind Poll released this morning. 52% of registered Republicans disapprove of Christie’s performance. 33% of Republicans approve.
“A proposed renovation of the statehouse may improve the executive wing, but public attitudes are proving more difficult to change.
