For weeks, the Chris Christie campaign has played to big crowds, while Democratic challenger Barbara Buono struggles to get her message out. But Christie's handlers have limited his press time in the run-up to the election. Matt Katz — who has covered Christie for the past three years for The Philadelphia Inquirer and who will be joining the staff of New Jersey Public Radio next week — has some theories about why.
"One suggestion is that there are certain issues that he doesn't really want to talk about right now," Katz said. "He's done selective interviews about Sandy, for example, with selected reporters. But he does not want — it doesn't seem — a general press conference where he can be asked about anything."
