Reaction Mixed to Christie as GOP Keynoter

Partisans on both sides of the political aisle wasted no time reacting to the choice of Gov. Chris Christie as keynote speaker at the Republican National Convention.

New Jersey Republicans cheered the selection announced Tuesday, while Democrats bemoaned the same Christie policies that helped land him the featured role.

GOP state committee Chairman Sam Raia says no elected leader is better suited to giving the party’s keynote address than Christie. He praised the governor for implementing conservative policies such as lowering the cost of government and reining in property tax growth.

Democratic State Committee Chairman John Wisniewski says Christie is the wrong choice for the job.

He says Christie has been falsely boasting about an economic comeback when unemployment remains high and New Jersey ranks 47th in business friendliness.
