We need a call-up for New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware.

From WCBS News:

In an e-mail to supporters, Christie says a formal announcement will come in the first week in February.

The filing allows Christie to start raising money for the 2009 race.

The 46-year-old Republican with a reputation as a corruption-busting prosecutor has been flirting with a gubernatorial bid since resigning as U.S. Attorney Dec. 1.

Christie faces a primary challenge from state Assemblyman Rick Merkt and former Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan.

Gov. Jon S. Corzine plans to seek re-election.

In addition, the Newark Star Ledger confirms that report.

Troops, lets get behind this, Christie is a hard working, good man, a corruption fighting prosecutor and an excellent choice for Govenor.
