Following Governor Chris Christie’s official endorsement of Donald Trump and a combative press conference in which the governor refused to answer “off-topic” questions from reporters, the Asbury Park Press editorial board is calling for his resignation.
“We’re disgusted with his endorsement of Donald Trump after he spent months on the campaign trail trashing him, calling him unqualified by temperament and experience to be president,” reads the editorial. “And we’re fed up with his continuing travel out of state on New Jersey’s dime, stumping for Trump, after finally abandoning his own presidential campaign. For the good of the state, it’s time for Christie to do his long-neglected constituents a favor and resign as governor. If he refuses, citizens should initiate a recall effort.”
