Christie on the road

Like a baseball team with a seven game lead with two weeks to go in the season, Chris Christie’s main concern is “complacency.”

Christie kicked off a three-day bus trip around the state this morning with a rally with 100 supporters outside his campaign office in Parsippany.  Flanked by his wife and four children, Christie said he was ready for the “home stretch.”

All polls have Christie leading main competitor Steve Lonegan, although the former Bogota mayor has narrowed the gap. Christie said supporters must not take anything for granted.  Dressed casually   _ without a tie and wearing sneakers   _  Christie’s first scheduled stop was   Bachstadt’s Tavern in Middletown …

Ah, nothing like a Saturday a.m. Bloody Mary.  His bus, which is so enormous it can pass for a small ocean liner, was next scheduled to make its way to south to such places as Glendora,  Wall Township and Point Pleasant before ending the day with a 7 p.m. stop in  Cardiff in Atlantic County.

    Christie has no plan, a long list of scandals, and he melts down on a regular basis like he did Fiday afternoon of the Jersey Guys. Chris Christie Whitman has little chance of beating Corzine and even if he would Christie will be essentially the same.

    I am voting for Lonegan.

    I’m curoius to see how well Lonegan does in Morris County with Christie and Merkt being natives. Should be interesting.

  3. I must admit at the onset I viewed Lonegan as a loon and Christie as corrupt but I am really starting to root for Christie. Who would be his top choices for the Lt. Governor spot?
