Protestors greet Christie on GOP fundraising tour
As Gov. Chris Christie makes the rounds fundraising for Republican governors nationwide, he’s encountering protestors along the way.
During a campaign trip in Connecticut on Monday, protestors lined the street to voice opposition to his recent veto of a gun magazine capacity measure.
Many had traveled from Newtown, site of the deadly 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary shooting. Christie angered those families by refusing to meet with them on the same day he vetoed the hot-button bill.
The governor figures to face more of the same resistance when he returns home to New Jersey today. He holds the first in a series of town halls to garner support for more pension reforms.
Unions have already spoken out against any potential cuts. Leaders say he is targeting public workers with the ‘No Pain, No Gain’ tour.
They plan to fight any proposal that calls for further reductions to their pensions and health benefits.
