Polls Open in New Jersey in Chris Christie Re-Election Bid

TRENTON, N.J. — Polls are open in New Jersey as voters decide who will lead the state.

Republican Gov. Chris Christie is seeking a second term against Democrat Barbara Buono. Under state law, he can’t run for a third term.

But Christie could leave before the term is over to run for president.

Polls leading up to Election Day show Christie with strong support in the Democratic-leaning state.

Buono campaigned without the aid of big-name Democrats, and polls showed she suffered from poor name recognition.

Voters will also choose their legislative representatives. Democrats now control both the Senate and Assembly.

Polls close at 5 p.m, California time.
