Chris Christie Tells Town Hall Audience That Elections Matter

Gov. Chris Christie has a question for political cynics: “Do you really think New Jersey is no different today than if you would have re-elected Jon Corzine?”

The governor told a crowd of 400 in South Plainfield that who they elect makes a difference.

Christie touted fiscal accomplishments of his first two years, like initiating a 2 percent property tax cap and making a portion of the state’s required pension payment. But he also took time to bash a frequent target, his predecessor.

Christie defeated Corzine in 2009 in a race that was considered an upset. He has since become a darling of the Republican Party.

He continues to leave the door open when asked about vice president, saying, “Don’t bet against” his being governor in December.
