Last month, PolitickerNJ explored the possible scenarios by which Gov. Chris Christie, whose rumored run for the Republican nomination is coming closer and closer to reality, might launch his possible 2016 presidential campaign.

And just as reliably, there’s the ritual of presidential candidates sniffing around for dough right after the midterm elections. (Kurson/New York Observer)
