Gov. Chris Christie has wasted no time endorsing longtime friend Jos Kyrillos for a U.S. Senate seat in New Jersey.

Christie made it official while campaigning with the GOP state

senator in Union County this week. The governor says New Jersey

“would be extraordinarily well-served” if residents were

represented by Kyrillos in Washington.

The 51-year-old is seeking the GOP nomination to challenge

Democratic incumbent Bob Menendez in November. Menendez is better

known and better financed, having amassed nearly $7 million for the

race.

Kyrillos, who kicked off his campaign Feb. 1, hasn’t submitted a

campaign finance report.

The veteran New Jersey lawmaker and former state GOP chairman

has been Christie’s closest Republican ally in the Legislature. And

Christie and his wife were match-makers for Kyrillos and his wife,

Susan.
