“About the only thing New Jersey voters and Gov. Christie agree on is their belief that he will make the top 10 Thursday night”, said Ashley Koning, assistant director of the Eagleton Center for Public Interest Polling at Rutgers University, which conducted Monday’s poll, in a press release.
Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie said over the weekend that the national teachers union deserved a “punch in the face” because it had become the most destructive force in America’s education system.
“They’re not for educating our children”. Their quick decision on Monday raised expectations that they will choose a death sentence after what prosecutors estimate will be two or three more days of testimony from survivors. “I’ve got the scars to show it”. The National Education Association, which has about 3 million members, has not endorsed a candidate.
During his speech, Christie said his campaign has detailed more policy specifics than of any of the other Republicans, such as plans to rebuild the military and to cut $1.2 billion in entitlement spending over the next decade. The AFT didn’t take the insult lying down, with its president, Randi Weingarten, calling Governor Christie a “bully” who has “anger management problems”.
On the state level, the New Jersey legislature is overwhelming Democratic: 60 percent of the Senate and 59 percent in the General Assembly.
However as an alternative of the polls, stated Christie, “what you need to supply to the individuals of the nation is what is going to catch their consideration and their creativeness over the course of time”. What do you think about Christie’s statement?
The New Jersey governor also said it would be “helpful to nominate someone who’s been in the fight on the 21st century issues, not the 20th century issues”.
Christie’s comment is not quite as nasty as that of another GOP governor seeking the party’s presidential nod, Wisconsin’s Scott Walker. They turned the playground analogy around and referred to Christie as the real bully who was unfairly attacking teachers. Quote: “You can either sidle up to them, or you can punch them in the face”.
In addition, how Trump will hold up on the debate stage Thursday is anyone’s guess at this point, and the more traditional candidates are figuring out how to keep Trump from turning the nationally televised event into a spectacle. “Chris Christie has no credibility as a leader and he is an embarrassment to New Jersey”.
President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made dueling appeals to the American Jewish community Tuesday as they sought to rally support for their opposing positions on the Iranian nuclear deal.
“I would not be the least bit surprised if the debate, in the beginning anyway, centers on Trump, [Wisconsin Gov. Scott] Walker, and [former Florida Gov. Jeb] Bush”, Schroeder said, leaving other candidates waiting to enter the conversation.
