On Tuesday night, Chris Christie won a second term as New Jersey Governor by about 20 points over his Democratic challenger, just as most pundits predicted. Many attribute this blow-out victory to the fact that he is perceived as a moderate Republican who can get things done. The fact of the matter is that Christie [...]
My favorite new blog? Bob Braun’s Ledger. Though it deals with issues of importance in New Jersey, it’s well-written and definitely worth a read, as shown in this entry about newly-reelected Republican Gov. Chris Christie. Chris Christie is a dangerous man.
But, gee whiz, guys and gals, wouldn’t it just be totally and awesomely cool [...]
Even though the 2012 election has just wrapped up, the pollsters at Public Policy Polling have already starting polling the 2016 presidential race. Regardless, the poll found two clear frontrunners in the race: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for the Republicans and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the Democrats.

Ouch bro, that’s gonna leave a mark. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who was effusive in his praise of President Barack Obama when the two leaders toured damage from Hurricane Sandy last week, turned down a request by Mitt Romney to appear with him at a rally on Sunday night in Pennsylvania, The Huffington Post [...]
This is a fascinating read… The strong internal push for Christie, and Romney’s initial instinct to pick him as his running mate, reflects how conflicted the nominee remained about choosing a running mate until the very end of the process. At least on the surface, Christie and Paul Ryan are about as opposite as two [...]

Mr. Christie, a Republican who took office in January 2010, would [...]
Tomorrow Republican Gov. Scott Walker (pictured, left), who never met an out of state supporter he didn’t welcome with open arms, will appear at the Oak Creek headquarters of landscaping company KEI with New Jersey Gov. (and Grade-A blowhard) Chris Christie.
The joint appearance at KEI by Govs. Walker and Christie is notable because the [...]
Surprise, surprise, surprise! Nobody could have predicted!

Wisconsin, you are not living up to your potential… Your mother and I are very disappointed in these grades. Don't you want to get into a good school?
Wisconsin ranks 22nd out of 50 states in terms of public integrity. If it weren’t for the formation of the GAB, we would have done much [...]
