Press Release - Forbes: The Conservative Case for Chris Christie
The Conservative Case for Christie
Patrick Gleason, Forbes
Following the first Republican presidential primary debate on August 6 that attracted a record 24 million viewers, it's clear Republican voters have a number of strong candidates to choose from. Among those candidates, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has one of the most impressive records from a conservative standpoint, and it's a record that deserves more attention from primary voters. What Gov. Christie has accomplished in a deep blue state over the last six years is worth close examination for Republicans looking for a nominee who has proven themself a staunch defender of taxpayers and, just as important, a strong general election candidate.
When looking at the nine current and former governors running for president, Gov. Christie's ability to rein in the growth of government stands out amongst his peers.
