I saw recently that Christie will be making several out-of-state political appearances for GOP candidates, but in-state, he’s only going to appear for the GOP congressional candidate ( the ex-NFLer..I can’t remember his name) why won’t he help with a few of these NJ races?..
why wont he help with a few of these NJ races?..
......he’s a very busy guiy
He has made some appearances for Little, but only a few. You are right, he seems to be fixed on the Runyon race. That looks like the most in-the-bag of the three possible pick-ups (Little, Sipprelle and Runyon). Maybe Christie is playing it safe, and only backing sure winners.
If so, it would be a rare example of Chris Christie backing down from a fight. He should lead with his chin on this one, IMHO. I think the Republicans can pick up all three of these seats, and there is not a RINO amongst them.
Can you imagine how high Chris Christie's stock would rise if he is seen as instrumental in the election of three new conservative Republican Congressmen from New Jersey? The 2012 talk would get really loud if that happened...
OTOH, if Christie plays it safe, and does not put his stamp on this election, he risks becoming an afterthought. Sure, he's the only game in town today, but there are going to be a lot of Tea Party Congressmen and Senators serving up the red meat after November 2. In six months, people could be asking "Chris Who?"
a week or so ago, I saw four NJ races that he was involved in. Can’t remember where I saw it, but it listed the four. You may check the FR search.
