Conservative radio host Mark Levin is not about to vote for Hillary Clinton, or “Barack Obama in a dress,” but he’s not going to do any favors for New Jersey’s Republican governor, either, should he decide to run.
“As for Chris Christie, I will do everything I can, in my little way, to make sure he is not the nominee,” Mr. Levin told Fox News host Neil Cavuto on Tuesday.
Mr. Levin said Mr. Christie has not done enough to build his conservative credentials in the mold of Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky or Ted Cruz of Texas.
The governor’s made some progress, “but he didn’t sign on to challenge Obamacare,” Mr. Levin said. “Why not?”
Earlier this year, Mr. Christie used the state’s annual budget to support the expansion of Medicaid enrollment as envisioned by the Affordable Care Act.
Cruising toward re-election, the blunt-spoken governor enjoys a high favorability rating in the Garden State.
“I bet he’s done 10 great things, but he hasn’t done enough,” Mr. Levin said. “The point is, if we keep nominating Republicans, moderates from the Northeast, we’re going to keep getting our lunch handed to us.”
