Despite inclement weather, Governor Mary Fallin's birthday celebration will still occur tonight at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City. However, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will no longer be able to attend due to travel complications caused by inclement weather. Christie plans to reschedule his trip to Oklahoma.
Despite the fact Governor Christie is unable to attend, he wants Oklahomans to know he is supporting Fallin's reelection campaign.
“Mary Fallin is a results-driven leader who has delivered for the people of Oklahoma,” said Governor Christie. “Her economic reforms have led to tens of thousands of new jobs and helped to raise incomes for middle class families. She’s cracked down on government waste by eliminating or consolidating unnecessary agencies, boards and commissions. And she’s focused on improving education, understanding that good schools eventually lead to good jobs and good wages for her citizens.
“And in times of crisis, Oklahomans benefited from a leader who was compassionate and committed to an organized, sustained recovery," concluded Christie.
Fallin said she was honored to have Christie’s endorsement.
“Chris Christie has been a strong, effective leader for the people of New Jersey,” said Fallin. “His efforts as the head of the Republican Governors Association will help to elect governors all across the country that are committed to the same common sense, conservative principles that we have embraced here in Oklahoma."
