TRENTON — Chris Christie easily won a second term as governor of New Jersey tonight, trouncing state Sen. Barbara Buono in a race viewed as precursor to a bid for the White House.

The Associated Press called the election for Christie at 8 p.m — just as polls closed across the state.

Did ya hear Christie try to himself a Conservative, not a Moderate.

Just like Romney in Mass., neither state would ever elect a Conservative, a Moderate/Liberal Republican, yes.

Though he seems to have lost a lot of weight since his gastric banding.

Wow! The CNN exit poll showed that only 25 percent of new Jersey voters are liberals!

I was scouring the headlines at work and I counted no less than 12 different MSM articles fawning over Christie.

Meet Hillary's sacrificial lamb, folks.

Christie is the RINO to beat in 2016.

Bush, McCain, Romney, Christie...

The media will push him just like it did the others. And the GOPe never one’s to shy away from being as thick as a brick, won’t tighten up their ship to prevent the “McCain” candidate from being voted in by Democrats during our primary cycle.

Christie was far, far preferable to his opponent.

Here is a line from his opponent: “On any number of issues important to New Jerseyans, Governor Christie has been out of step with the majority of the state. From opposing a woman’s right to choose to vetoing marriage equality to siding with the gun lobby, Chris Christie has consistently taken right-wing positions that put his presidential prospects ahead of what’s right for New Jersey.”

Buono also picked as a running mate an official of the most left-wing branch of the SEIU union, a branch which was heavily infiltrated by communists.

It would be great if he were named Secretary of Education in a Ted Cruz administration.

The repositioning and repackaging begins:

He would have to do some wicked voodoo to get anybody on this site to vote for him in the primaries.

I know come 2016, it’s going to as ugly here on FR as it was during the last campaign cycle.

Christie will deceive even some of the “elect.”

“Meet Hillary’s sacrificial lamb, folks. “

How about her choice for a unified ticket to get the country back on the right path? Of course that is code for even more liberal.

Huckabee is pro second amendment. He also is conservative on all social issues. Chrisi is not. No comparison.

He's surprisingly conservative for a statewide winner in New Jersey. Compare him to Christie Todd Whitman and he comes across as a hard-core right winger.

Having said that ... I don't think he's going to win in 2016. In fact, I don't think he's even going to run for the White House in 2016. I've said all along that he's really been angling to be the U.S. Attorney General in a Republican administration.

I suppose she was just a sacrificial lamb, and I just read elsewhere that she got no money (or other help) from the National party, but Buono was a terrible candidate.

On her most recent TV ad she was dressed like she was going to the supermarket, no “gravitas” at all, and no “homey” charm either.

Of course Christie moved heaven and earth to put Booker in the Senate and clear the decks for himself.

I did not vote for him, I can’t forgive him for the front page slurp job he gave Obama last year.

His first choice was to be Mitt Romney’s AG after the 2012 election, but Romney couldn’t beat one of the weakest incumbent candidates in years.

Well that would be OK. He’s basically King Solomon compared to the anti-white racist Eric Holder.

He sure had a strange way of showing it.

He wouldn't be losing all the weight, if he wasn't running for POTUS.....He's got every pundit telling him that he's the GOP Front-Runner.

Or maybe he just recognized a loser when he saw one.

Let's face it ... If Mitt Romney had appeared on a straw poll here on FreeRepublic with 10,000 other hypothetical Republican candidates for the White House, he would have finished somewhere down with the Lindsey Grahams, Rudy Giulianis, Mark Sanfords and assorted child molesters of the world.

He’s trying to slim down for 2016. No thanks, Krispy!
