The Republican running against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo blasted Chris Christie on Tuesday for dismissing his race as a lost cause and suggested the two Northeastern governors are in cahoots as they deal with the fallout over the Bridgegate scandal.
GOP gubernatorial hopeful Rob Astorino made the comments at a news conference in Manhattan, which fell a day after Christie, the chairman of the Republican Governors Association, said he doesnt invest in landslides or lost causes.
Astorino said that if the New Jersey governor is unable to help a Republican candidate for governor, then maybe he should consider stepping down as chairman of the RGA. Thats his job.
He added, according to the New York Daily News, Maybe its inconvenient to come over the bridge to New York to help a Republican candidate for governor here. Thats his call, whether he wants to or not, but as RGA chair he has governors and candidates who have a chance to win and its incumbent upon him to help all of us.
Christies comments came Monday as he campaigned with and raised money for Connecticut GOP gubernatorial hopeful Tom Foley. The remarks overshadowed the event with Foley and served as a reminder that the Bridgegate scandal could continue to be used by critics as a political cudgel as he tries to turn his attention forward.

Fat krispy is a gaffe machine. I actually hope he runs so we can watch Cruz slaughter him.
What gets me about Christie is he got all this crap over bridgegate, but on the same token when the New York city council turned down Bloombergs congestion pricing, he then proceeded to do the same exact revenge thing only 100 times worse in the ENTIRE New York city area, closing down entire streets, cutting streets in half, making streets into “malls” to the point where ambulances, fire trucks, and police cars would be stuck in traffic at a dead stop with sirens blaring. Nary a peep from the libs , but because they see Christie as a threat to Hitlery there’s this huge outcry over “bridge gate”. Absolutely guaranteed if RINO Bloomberg decided to run for POTUS they would do the same thing to him. Liberals only complain when someone threatens their quest for power.
You nailed it. You can think what you want about Chris Christie, but it's no coincidence that the bridge scandal, outcry over his NJ tourism commercials, etc. suddenly erupted immediately after a series of polls showed him defeating Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Even in NY none of the 29 Republican State Senators have contributed to Asotrinos campaign. Absolutely pathetic.
