New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie cruised to re-election Tuesday, giving Republicans a bright spot in an off-year election, while all eyes turned to Old Dominion.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie cruised to re-election Tuesday, giving Republicans a bright spot in an off-year election and demonstrating how the GOP can win in blue states and potentially positioning himself as a counterweight to the tea party in the 2016 Republican presidential primaries.
ANALYSIS: A year after President Obama rode to re-election accusing Republicans of a war on women, the governor's races in New Jersey and Virginia offered the GOP two options for how to strike back.
A new Quinnipiac University poll shows that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie holds a 58 percent to 30 percent lead, suggesting he is on his well on his way to pancaking Democrat state Sen. Barbara Buono in the November election.
Gov. Chris Christie promised in his annual State of the State address Tuesday that New Jersey will be back "stronger than ever" after Superstorm Sandy and will do it without returning to the "old ways of wasteful spending and rising taxes."
"I took one for the team. The only problem: I realized too late, their was no team," Mrs. Buono said.
Buono also said Gov. Christie has cut aid to higher education and that it has created a hardship for students in New Jersey, where average tuition is the nation's third-highest.
