New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has undergone lap-band surgery, vetoed gun control bills and banned anti-gay conversion therapies for minors — all while touting his ability to push conservative principles in a blue state.
As the Republican Party ponders its future, this year's Conservative Political Action Conference showcased two men who could be its leader: Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, who activists saw as the man who can unite their movement, and Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, who has staked his claim to be the GOP's fighting heart.
Republicans found themselves facing agonizing day-after questions Wednesday that they admit are nearly impossible to answer while trying to hold together their diverse electoral coalition and ensure their survival as America's conservative party.
Both presidential campaigns and their super PAC allies are now running television ads in Pennsylvania, with Republicans making a late push to try to swing the state their way, and Democrats moving to block them.
The struggling economy is even making its presence felt on state ballots across the country this November, as initiatives on social issues such as abortion, immigration and gay rights are giving way to bread-and-butter questions about taxes and government spending.
Republicans this fall are hoping that what doesn't tear them apart will only make them stronger.
Former Nebraska Sen. Chuck Hagel crossed party lines again yesterday to endorse Democrat Rep. Joe Sestak, casting the former U.S. Navy admiral and U.S. Senate candidate as someone who is not afraid to buck party leaders on Capitol Hill.
South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint has bet on the right horse in an impressive string of Senate primary contests this year, but the freshman Republican's biggest challenge will likely be how he and his band of conservative outsiders fit into the GOP establishment.
"The conventional wisdom is that the Christie act won't play well with Republican primary voters and won't play well in early primary states. But I think the interest in taking the White House after the last eight years will outweigh that," Mr. Gerow said.
Charlie Gerow, CEO of Pennsylvania-based Quantum Communications, said Mr. Christie's positive features will attract Republican voters "because ultimately Republicans want to win 2016."
