Chris Christie = New Jersey

Gov. Christie’s speech on Tuesday was one of the most unique State of the State addresses on record. In a year when he is up for reelection, he did not feel the need to offer one single proposal as a hook on which to campaign. His record over the past three years and his indispensability to the Sandy recovery effort are more than enough to earn him a second term. And the opinion polls support that view. [cont.]
