Race to Top aftermath proves Christie’s power, says Bramnick

The criticism peppering Gov. Chris Christie in the aftermath of yesterday’s announcement proves how strong he is, argues Assembly Minority Conference Leader Jon Bramnick (R-Westfield).

The governor’s opponents are getting their slaps in now – while they can, Bramnick told PolitickerNJ.com.

“What’s happened is any type of opening creates an onslaught,” said the assemblyman. “People think maybe he made a mistake. The attacks just show how few openings there have been in the past. If he wasn’t such a successful leader, people wouldn’t be pouncing on it. The way I see it, it’s a minor jab landed in the first round – and I ain’t betting against the governor to score a knockout.”
