Gov. Chris Christie picked up another endorsement from a powerful Democrat today.

State Sen. Brian Stack, the mayor of Union City and a Democratic powerbroker in Hudson County, said this afternoon that the Republican governor has been one the most responsive and impressive state leaders he’s ever worked with.

“I’ve had a great relationship with him for four years. There are things we agreed on, things we disagree on,” Stack said, noting, for example, that they have different views on same-sex marriage. “He’s been a governor that’s been truly responsive. I mean, you call him, he calls you back the same day. And he’ll tell you if he can do something or he can’t do it.”

Stack joins a growing list of Democrats who have endorsed Christie over state Sen. Barbara Buono, a veteran Middlesex County lawmaker who won the Democratic primary for governor last week. Essex County Executive Joseph DiVincenzo, a Democrat, also plans to endorse Christie on Tuesday, two sources told The Star-Ledger earlier today.
