Chris Christie's Watershed Moment

Gov. Chris Christie with State Sen. Joe Kyrillos in 2012
From New Jersey Public Radio

52 times the New Jersey legislature attempted to override a Christie veto.

52 times it ended in failure, with nearly every Republican legislator voting against an override.

But streaks are meant to be broken. And this time things were different.

NJPR’s Matt Katz and Bergen Record columnist Charles Stile join us to consider what this moment means for New Jersey.


The New York Times editorial board called Christie’s comments about the Black Lives Matter movement “racially poisonous.” And much has been said about the extreme statements he made about the movement and President Obama on CBS’s Face the Nation this weekend. But what about his assertion that he’s the law and order candidate – and, by extension, the one that cares most about police?

John Reitmeyer with NJ Spotlight joins host David Furst to discuss the governor’s relationship with cops in New Jersey.
