REPORT: Chris Christie refused to campaign for Cuccinelli, but he’s going to campaign for Lindsey Graham…

TPM is reporting that Chris Christie refused to campaign for Cuccinelli when asked by ‘senior conservative Republicans’:

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) declined an invitation to go to Virginia and campaign on behalf of Republican gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli, according to MSNBC’s Chuck Todd.

Citing an unnamed Republican source, Todd said on-air Tuesday night that “some senior conservative Republicans” asked Christie to campaign for Cuccinelli, but the re-elected New Jersey governor passed.



TPM is also reporting that Christie is going to campaign for Lindsey Graham:

Fresh off a landslide victory Tuesday, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) told the New York Times that he intends to go to “places like Ohio and Michigan and Florida,” all of which have GOP governors facing re-election next year.

According to the Times, Christie informed Republicans in South Carolina he intends to go to bat for Graham, who is facing a GOP primary next year.

Chris Christie wants to be president. Here are several reasons why he should not be president. Christie is NOT a conservative. He is an unprincipled, loudmouth bully. Christie has taken money from the Federal Government, i.e. the American taxpayers to prop up New Jersey. He assisted Barack Hussein Obama in his re-election over Mitt Romney. Furthermore, Christie is weak on the second Amendment, he supports gun control; he is weak on immigration, he supports amnesty; he is weak on the threat of Islam, he supports the 911 mosque and appointed Islamists to the bench; he’s in favor of the green agenda, Cap and Trade; he campaigned for RINO Mike Castle; and was MIA on health care litigation. For additional information Tom Marr has a You-Tube video exposing the RINO Chris Christie for what and who he is. ” in with them and suggesting they explain their position to victims of… Read more »

Greg, what state hasn’t taken federal money? That’s the whole game. Cristie kissed up to Obama to help his state in a crisis, like any other governor would be expected to.

Yeah Ed, but Greg is absolutely correct on everything he said. First thing he did was appoint a member of the Muslim Brotherhood to the NJ State Supreme Court, and he is definitely against the 2nd Amendment and supports sanctuary cities. He will never make it to the White House…nationally he is not a favorite.
The only way a Repuklican wins in the very BLUE STATE is to be a RINO!

He claims to be fiscally responsible, yet he did nothing to put an end to Obamacare, which is an entitlement program and redistribution of wealth. He is expanding Medicaid, which is on the verge of bankruptcy, with money coming from the Federal government for two years before the State will have to pick up the bulk portion of the plan.I have heard people are still hurting from hurricane Sandy.And if the money is deserving there is no need to kiss up to an evil, radical Statist like Barack Hussein Obama. It looked as if Christie had a man-crush on Obama especially when he won him a stuffed toy.

He’s going to all of those places, including SC, because all of those places have GOP governor’s up for re-election. Next year he will be the chairman of the Republican Governor’s Assoc. That’s why he is going all of those places.

Also, he didn’t campaign for anyone else this year because he was up for re-election.

Gosh, am I tired of voting for the lessor of two evils. And that includes Bush; all the liberal policies he stood for along with a prolonged war. If the repub estab puts up Christie as the repub nominee, someone will have to drag me out of bed to vote because, after Obama, and most everyone putting up with his antics, I really see no reason to vote for Christie. Just more of the same; crooked, egotistical, sheep in wolves clothing, self serving politician. I sort of feel the same way about Jeb Bush, etc. When push comes to shove, I will, of course, drag my sorry behind to the voting polls. Instead of holding my nose, I will vote with tears streaming down my face; knowing that no matter how I vote, socialism/Marxism/communism has taken over the country. And now that the repub estab has announced their choice, we… Read more »

I like this Christie guy. He seems very conservative. He’s certainly not one of those “moderates”.

And as a plus, he’s in great shape too. His fitness regime must be epic. He’d easily win the women’s vote in 2016. What eye-candy.

I can’t wait to hear Rush and Mark Levin have a field day with this one. This goes right to the heart of what Rush was saying today about establishment GOP. They would rather lose then back conservatives of any stripe…and I think most especially fiscal conservatives. I think social conservatism has little to do with it. Remember these guys line their pockets as well so fiscal conservatism would hurt them personally and the power of the purse is the main driver and controller of power in America.

None of this makes sense to me. The ground swell of opposition to anything related to the old old Grand Old Party grows by the day, and how Rove and Company think they can con us into voting for the ghost of William Howard Taft is beyond me. Without our votes, he wouldn’t have a chance against Hillary and though the thought of her as president revolts my sensibilities, I think our time would be better spent on capturing the house and senate with as many conservatives as possible in the coming elections.

These RINOs are just snakes with now the new leader being Chris Christie. We MUST separate from these people by redefining the Republican party and pushing Chris Christie and Rove and all who are characterized as RINOs into the democrat party because they are really democrat lite, NOT the party of Reagan or Lincoln. That’s the Tea Party and here is where we part ways. The teaparty has the most representative and articulate spokesman for Constitutional Conservatism and that’s where the strength lies. Illegals, Muslims, Chris Christie, or the RINOs have no interest in our Constitution so by articulating the Principles we have an advantage.

Christie is just avoiding contamination with the toxic “controlling other people’s lady parts” ProLife crowd. However, Christie is fine working with Grahamnesty because Sen Graham strongly limits his long held ProLife position to the politically pragmatic goal of setting a 20 week window as the boundary of Abortion Choice… This defensible position is based upon the plausible and politically marketable notion that, at 20 weeks, the fetus may feel pain — has some sort of consciousness… If Cucc had strongly limited his ProLife position to “narrowing the ProChoice window” instead of “trying to control other people’s lady parts” from the beginning, Cucc would probably have got Christie and many others to help him out… Putting the ProChoice crowd on the defensive as causing pain for the unborn would shut them up and allow political debate to move on to other issues that can be won… Or put another way —… Read more »

First off your accepting the liberal narrative that conservatives want to “control people’s lady parts.” This is so absurd that it does not require an intelligent response. But let’s move beyond that. The divide right now between the Conservative and liberal wings of the republican party is not really about abortion. It is about the ruling class within the Republican party refusing to push back against the liberal agenda and at times even embracing it. Whether its cutting the budget, delaying/defunding/repealing Obamacare, Immigration, entitlement reform, tax reform, the establishment republicans repeatedly cut the legs out from under the conservative members of the party. The Republican Party as it is today does not stand for anything. They do not want to curtail big government because they themselves are statists and they like having the power. The Bushes, McCain, Graham, Cristie etc. are no friends to liberty. They are statists, perhaps not… Read more »

It doesn’t require accepting that liberal’s paint social conservative as the lady parts crowd other than that’s the playbook liberal’s SUCCESSFULLY EMPLOY whenever they face anyone with even the remotest of ties to these sorts of unachievable social conservative views. What is absurd is to ignore the obvious bogeyman in the room and move on as if there’s no bogeyman in the room trying to control other people’s lady parts. The GOP LOSERship is less than weak when it comes to fighting the OCrats on principle. BIG DUH! That’s because the LOSERship are MudFarmers — conservative principles mean little to them. The muckier the mess the Ocrats make of the Oconomy, the more cronies the GOP Mudfarmers can pull out of the muck to get ahead of Main Street remaining stuck in the muck. The MudFarmers do this in exchange for political donations (and insider info) used to maintain their… Read more »

Christie is of the establishment, nothing shocking that he wouldn’t help Cuccinnelli. Time to co-ordinate with Tea Party Patriots rapid responders, build connections and support between tea party groups. We need to build our groups and energize them. Then have our own propaganda war online: First,use the debacle of Obamacare as the path to victory, harness the distrust and anger felt by those who have been disenfranchised by this law to win both nationally and locally. Keep blogging on websites that low-information voters follow, explaining the disaster that is Obamacare and reiterating that we need to vote for those who will repeal it, while refuting the lies of the lamestream media. Second, fight back against the establishment in the primaries both locally and nationally: I am supporting Katrina Pierson http://www.katrinaforcongress.com against Pete Sessions in CD 32, and Matt Bevin in the primary against Mitch Mc Connell.

Forget the Democraps (for now). Our enemy is now the GOPe. They’ve shown the crooked lengths that they’ll go just to defeat the Tea Party. And as such, they HAVE to be Public Enemy Number 1! We shouldn’t really be too surprised by this… they’ve been at this for months now (years)… but they deliberately ceded a victory – almost a sure thing, just to hurt the Tea Party… to eat their own in a way. They’re cannibals. How damn evil is that? Couple that with the Clinton/Obama camps funding a 3rd party and they’re both on the same basic side. McConnell, Boehner, Graham, and a couple others are first up in 2014… THEY are the first that MUST go. Knock those devils out and start filling up Washington with new, fresh, uncorrupted blood and visionaries and we might be able to stop those idiots from putting Chris Christie up… Read more »
