In a Thursday tweet, she wrote: “@GovChristie’s dead to me.”
The tweet came on the heels of Republican Sen. Jeffrey Chiesa’s vote to end debate on the immigration reform bill. Mr. Chiesa was appointed to the seat by Mr. Christie after Sen. Frank Lautenberg died.
At the tail of her tweet, Ms. Coulter also added: “Jeffrey S. Chiesa R NJ votes ‘Aye’ on Amnesty bill.”
The denouncement is a major turn for Ms. Coulter, who pushed hard for Mr. Christie to run for president against Barack Obama in 2011. In February of 2011, she told Fox News: “I don’t care if [Chris Christie] wants to run, his country needs him, it appears.”
And at the Conservative Political Action Conference in 2011, she said similarly: “If we don’t run Chris Christie, [Mitt] Romney will be the nominee and we’ll lose,” The Daily Caller reported.
Mr. Hannity: “Your buddy Chris Christie is out there sucking up to Obama this week,” Mediaite reported.
Ms. Coulter now seems to support Sen. Ted Cruz as the Republican candidate for president. At the end of her tweet on Thursday, she wrote: “CRUZ 2016!”
