Chris Christie takes his first trip to the South for a campaign stop with Mitt Romney in Richmond, Va., Friday night. It’s his 34 campaign appearance for Republicans outside New Jersey since September 1.  The GOP pays for his expenses, except for the detail of New Jersey State Police officers who provide security for Christie.

I can understand why Crisco Chrisie would want to leave the state. If you can't stand the heat . . .
9.9% unemployment, 250 million shortfall in projected revenue, no "New Jersey Miracle" that was gonna be his 2016 presidential campaign theme. The poor guy needs to get out of the kitchen.

Anywhere but work on pulling his own state's unemployment rate down. It's two points above national.
