In the first round of tonight’s CNN presidential debate, Gov. Chris Christie seized on a Jake Tapper question to contrast himself with the Democratic Legislature in his home state.
“I wake up every morning as an outsider! I wake up every morning with a Democratic legislature who’s trying to beat my head in and fight me because I’m trying to bring conservative change to a state that needed it desperately.,” Christie said.
“And so, everyone can talk up here about their credentials, but the bottom line is, every morning, I get up, I vetoed 400 bills from a crazy liberal Democratic legislature, not one of them has been overridden, I’ve vetoed more tax increases than any Governor in American history, according to Americans for Tax Reform, what folks want in this country is somebody to go down there and get the job done and that’s exactly what l’ll do,” he added.
