NEWARK - The front-runners in two of New Jersey's highest profile elections spoke together Wednesday, despite being members of opposing political parties.

Both U.S. Senate candidate Cory Booker and Gov. Chris Christie are comfortably leading their respective races.

The two men took part in a ribbon-cutting for the Teachers Village complex in Newark.

During a news conference, Booker said he was happy to appear with the governor, and Gov. Christie touted his working relationship with the state's most popular Democrat.

Both men have endorsed and raised money for the other's opponent in their respective races.

Depending on which poll you read, both candidates are leading their opponents by at least double figures.
