900 Aboard NJ Chamber of Commerce Train to Washington D.C.

Governor Chris Christie and the woman who wants to replace him head to Washington Thursday along with 900 of New Jersey’s movers and shakers which started with a breakfast.

Christie will give a progress report on Superstorm Sandy recovery efforts as keynote speaker at the state Chamber of Commerce’s annual trip to the nation’s capital.

Among those at a breakfast in Newark before the trip were Newark Mayor Cory Booker, Senator Barbara Buono and Verizon Regional Vice President Jim Gerace. Former Governor Brendan Bryne and his wife Ruthee were also in attendance; the trip is Bryne’s 50th.

The chamber’s 76th trip features a chartered 14-car train. Despite traveling by rail, the trip has long been called the Walk to Washington because people network as they walk through the cars.

Christie, who is seeking re-election, doesn’t plan to take the train.

However, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Barbara Buono plans to board the train in New Brunswick.
