Chris Christie Goes to Iowa

Monday, July 21, 2014

Governor Chris Christie recently visited Iowa - ostensibly to raise money for the National Governor's Association - stirring speculation that he's setting up a presidential run and trying to put "Bridgegate" behind him. Karen Tumulty, national political correspondent for The Washington Post, discusses the trip's political implications.

Not sure where he'll be in Jan '16, but tonight he's visiting Greenwich, acting all presidential, heading up a fundraiser for Tom Foley, who's contending for the Republican nominee for Governor of CT. My group, the Greenwich Council Against Gun Violence, will be "welcoming" him, telling him how we feel about his recent veto of a bill that would have lowered the maximum number of bullets in ammunition clips; the veto coming after his refusing to meet with families of children killed at Newtown. If you'd like to join our welcome party, we're meeting at 6pm at the corners of Field Point Ave and Shore Rd in the Belle Haven section of Greenwich, or rather just outside Belle Haven which is a gated community. Just off Exit 3 on 95. Kids, teens and handmade signs are welcome.

Whether he's campaigning for himself or not, Iowans should watch out. You don't want to vote someone like that in, who practices cronyism.
