Do I look like Im taking any questions? New Jersey Governor Chris Christie snapped at Breitbart News when asked for his response to his colleagues' plan to campaign with Republican Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, New York Governor Andrew Cuomos opponent this year.
Christie slammed Astorino and his long shot race against Cuomo recently, telling NJ.com he would only spend time in places where we have a chance to win I said that right from the beginning. He then added, We dont pay for landslides, and we dont invest in lost causes.
However, after Republican Governors Association members found out that Christie tried to convince New York State GOP Chairman Ed Cox to keep Astorino away from the RGA conference, Governors like Rick Perry, Bobby Jindal, Nikki Haley, Scott Walker, and Mike Pence offered to campaign with Astorino and raise money for the Westchester GOPer.
I helped him years ago when he first was a county executive and that was when I was a county executive. And I was happy to give him some insights and thought the world of him. I was in Milwaukee County he was in Westchester and both are very Democratic leaning counties, said Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.
Indiana Gov. Mike Pence told Breitbart News he recently spoke to Astorino. "He's a great guy and dynamic candidate, and I look forward to campaigning with him in New York."
Rob is a great candidate. I think as a Republican Party and a conservative party we have to compete in every state, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal told Breitbart News.

Like the NRSC, the RGA instead of working to get republican governors elected, only wants to get moderate governors elected. Otherwise, they're for the democrat.
Christie, don’t go away mad. Just go away.
I guess I missed something.
“I guess I missed something.”
Take a look at the Virginia governor’s race last November.
No, you look like a beached whale governor...
I despise Fat Chris Christie Soprano.
There will always be a face of RINOism, Christie is as good as any as his act wears thin, and he has little self-control.
Why is it that every time I see Christie I think of Tony Soprano?
You do now. Great big fat questions.
To be fair, Christie does make Hillary look like a liberal...
I just returned from a 2 week visit to NY (NYC ‘burbs). NY TV has anti-Astorino “corrupt” ads on around the clock. Paid for by NYS Democrat party. Never saw one pro-Cuomo, isn’t he a great governor, ad.
Maybe by November all the ‘guests’ from Central America that Andrew invited to NYS will have infected enough natives to turn the tide.
Fat boi loves DemocRats like his BFF Barry the fraud Soetoro.
