Tuesday night Chris Christie was reelected as New Jersey's governor by a margin of 60 percent to Barbara Buono's 38 percent. While 22 points isn't shabby, it's not the margin of victory lusted after by those who see SuperFleece as the next American president.Read the rest here.
Nonetheless, Christie proved that a moderate Republican, at least against a weak opponent, can appeal to the traditional N.J. Democratic base of Latinos, blacks, and your average Joe. Jane voted red too: according to a CNN exit poll, 56 percent of women voted for Christie, despite the first all-female slate with Barbara Buono and Milly Silva.
Christie's challenge now is to use his ''mandate'' to try to complete his mission.
