NEW JERSEY 101.5

By a 22-point margin yesterday, Gov. Chris Christie got the landslide win he was craving. He celebrated with a rousing victory speech which did nothing to dissuade those who believe he has his eyes on the White House.

Many political observers felt beating his opponent wasn’t going to be good enough if Christie truly wants to run for president in 2016. He had to crush State Sen. Barbara Buono and he did.

An excited crowd of supporters packed the Asbury Park Convention Hall to hear the victorious Governor tout his success as a bi-partisan leader and compare it to the dysfunction in the nation’s capitol.

“Now listen, I know that if we can do this in Trenton New Jersey, maybe the folks in Washington, D.C. should tune in (and) see how it’s done,” said Christie. “When we fight, we fight for those things that really matter in peoples’ lives.”

At times, Christie also sounded like a man who wants to accomplish a lot in the Garden State.

“I didn’t seek a second term to do the little things,” explained Christie. “I sought a second term to finish the job. Now watch me do it…Under this government our first job is to get the job done and as long as I’m Governor that job will always, always be finished….I will never stop leading the state I love.”

As he did throughout his campaign, the Governor also talked about Superstorm Sandy and its impact on his governorship. He called the completion of the recovery his mission.

“I will not let anyone, anything, any political party, any governmental entity, or any force get in between me and the completion of my mission,” declared Christie.

The Governor was already popular when Sandy devastated New Jersey a little over a year ago. More than 360,000 homes and businesses were damaged or destroyed and widespread power outages left 5.5 million people in the dark for days.

Christie’s approval numbers skyrocketed as led the state through its worst natural disaster.
